TOGC 2024: Building Hydrogen Pipeline Infrastructure for the Future

TOGC 2024: Building Hydrogen Pipeline Infrastructure for the Future

One of the highlights of the business programme of the Transportation Oil and Gas Congress (TOGC 2024) is the topic of hydrogen readiness of infrastructure. C-level audience and leading technical specialists gather to discuss cases of hydrogen implementation and how to adapt, maintain and monitor hydrogen infrastructure. The Congress is held in Milan, Italy, on February, 19-21.

The hydrogen readiness of the pipeline infrastructure is a critical factor in the development of a hydrogen economy. By repurposing existing natural gas pipelines to transport hydrogen, governments and industry players can reduce the costs and accelerate the deployment of hydrogen infrastructure. For instance, in order to enlarge export capacity and zero out the emissions, Israel Natural Gas Lines LTD (INGL), the leader in natural gas distribution in Israel, started a hydrogen transfer project. The company is going to share initial insights from the project in frames of the Transportation Oil and Gas Congress.

The Congress brings together oil and gas majors, EPCs, pipeline operators, storage operators and traders to network and discuss the trends of the industry and the potential for market growth. Representatives from PETROBRAS, Linde Engineering, TECHINT Engineering, Construction, Wood, ElinOil are already registered for participation. TOGC 2024 delegates are going to share the experience and thoughts on infrastructure adaptation for hydrogen, cases of hydrogen implementation, safety of H2 injection, and also the question of how to monitor and maintain H2 infrastructure.

Hydrogen pipeline safety and operations are also going to be discussed at TOGC 2024. The development of a hydrogen economy requires the construction of a vast network of hydrogen pipelines. By taking the necessary safety precautions, hydrogen pipeline operators can ensure the safe transportation of hydrogen. During the Congress, Colin McKinnon, Technical Director at Wood, is going to talk about hydrogen pipeline safety and operations and what are the differences from a natural gas pipeline.

Another topic that is going to be highlighted at the Congress by Chris Nowak, Specialist Consultant at Danish Energy Agency, is called “From methane infrastructure – onto hydrogen”. To ramp up hydrogen as an energy source in Denmark, the company has put down national market legislation for hydrogen infrastructure before the EU is ready. Using the schematics of what works well in the methane and electricity sector, the company is trying to apply it to hydrogen.
