In order to prepare for a future use of hydrogen as a fuel gas, it became evident that very little information existed regarding the compatibility between long-term exposure and transportation of hydrogen in natural gas pipelines. A program was therefore set to study the transportation in a small-scale pilot grid.
 
Main conclusions of the test and analysis work indicate that hydrogen will not increase the degradation of the tested polymer pipe materials. Slightly increased leakage compared to natural gas service was observed. Pipe connections, valves etc. must be checked periodically for hydrogen leak resistance.
