The project aims to assess the feasibility of hydrogen transmission using the NTS; the NTS could possibly be used to transmit natural gas blend with significant increased hydrogen content.
The primary objectives of this work are to answer key questions around the suitability of the NTS to transport hydrogen and develop a scope to test the assumptions made in the assessment which will act as a proof of concept for eventual online trials.
To provide sufficient information to help develop a strategy for the future of the NTS in hydrogen distribution future scenarios by understanding its limitations of hydrogen blends that can safely transport and what needs to change to enable this.
