SOLD OUT – Hydrogen Pipelines – Designing for the Future
October 19, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm$10.00 – $15.00
Society of Petroleum Engineers Western Australia is pleased to announce the October Facilities Group Technical Event lead by Josh Wickham from GPA Engineering.
About the Presentation
Pipelines and distribution networks have reliably transported oil and gas across Australia for decades. What is their future in a decarbonized energy sector? Can they be built safely or existing systems re-purposed to supply low carbon fuels such as hydrogen?
Josh will highlight the work that is being undertaken in the Australian energy sector determining how new and existing pipelines can be used for transporting gaseous hydrogen. His talk will cover key considerations for design, highlighting some of the technical challenges being assessed, the role of research in this effort, key industry and research projects underway and the development of a Code of Practice for Hydrogen Pipeline Design to provide guidance to the industry.
