Abstract

The addition of hydrogen in natural gas could have an impact on the degradation over time of the materials currently used for the storage, transport, distribution and use of natural gas. The compatibility of these materials with natural gas including of hydrogen is dependent on the proportion of hydrogen added to the gas and is assessed with regard to several criteria: Permeation of hydrogen through metallic materials; loss of integrity of these materials and adaptation of follow-up actions in service, surveillance and maintenance of equipment. This paper is devoted to the effect of hydrogen embrittlement (HE) by adding hydrogen into natural gas network on design, maintenance, supervision and maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOP) for smooth and damaged pipes.
