The world is heading for hydrogenEXPLORE
A cost-advantage study for hydrogen compared to steel pipes
Pipes based on thermoplastic composites such as Reinforced Thermoplastic Pipes (RTP) and Thermoplastic Composite Pipes (TCP), have been challenging traditional steel pipes in the last decade in the Oil and Gas Industry by offering a light, ductile, spoolable and corrosion-free solution for transportation of liquids and gases. In the past decade thousands of kilometers of RTPs have been installed mainly for transportation of hydrocarbon and water across the globe and in the recent years TCPs have been challenging steel pipes in most demanding application such as deep-water dynamic risers. To extend the application of composite pipes to hydrogen delivery, they should compete with steel solutions in two main aspects: cost and reliability.
- A cost-advantage study for H2 compared to steel pipes
- Risk assessment and an industrial guideline to cover the gaps in the existing standards for design and qualification of composite pipes i.e. DNV-ST-F119 and API 15S for H2 applications.
