29-km Scottish pipeline to be used to move hydrogen

INEOS has participated with SGN to trial transporting hydrogen through a 29-kilometre decommissioned pipeline.

The project, that is funded by Ofgem will see hydrogen, supplied by the chemicals giant, transported from INEOS Grangemouth facility to Granton, Scotland.

The project aims to establish whether re-purposing existing natural gas networks for hydrogen is going to be beneficial.

Earlier this year, in its ‘Britain’s Hydrogen Blending Delivery Plan’ report, the Energy Networks Association (ENA) implied all five of Britain’s gas grid companies will meet the government’s target for Britain’s network of gas pipes to be ready to deliver 20% hydrogen to homes and businesses from 2023.

Andrew Gardner, Chairman INEOS Grangemouth, stated: “We believe that Grangemouth is the ideal location in Scotland to create a hub for hydrogen production, use and export.”

SGN Director of Energy Futures Gus Mcintosh announced: “Our Local Transmission System is part of the
national critical infrastructure that reaches millions of homes and businesses across the UK.

“So, re-purposing it for hydrogen could support a hydrogen system transformation that is least cost and least disruptive to customers.”
