This project will focus on the blending hydrogen into natural gas pipeline networks as a means of delivering hydrogen to markets. Mixing hydrogen into natural gas pipelines requires several considerations regarding the compression of this mixture, the use of the mixture as a fuel (for example, in gas turbines), and the impact of pipeline capacity and transport efficiency. However, there still a need to improve the quality and quantity of data available for hydrogen-natural gas mixtures (such as density, heat capacity, speed of sound, viscosity, phase equilibrium, water-vapour dewpoint, and interfacial tension) to assess the impact of hydrogen addition in various concentrations to a natural gas pipeline.
