Hydrogen and CO2 Pipeline Integrity Management

Download Submission

EDSS-Hydrogen-Event-1st-InvitationROSEN are currently advertising a 2-day in person training on Hydrogen and CO2 Pipeline Integrity Management.

Brisbane: 30th – 31st July

Sydney: 5th – 6th August


The Agenda will be split over 2 days from 9:00am to appx. 4:30pm



Day 1: (09:00 - 16:30)


Energy Transition


  • Introduction to the Energy Transition
  • History of hydrogen
  • Properties of hydrogen
  • Production of hydrogen (different colours)
  • Hydrogen demand and use
  • CO2 history, current dynamic and projects / landscape of CO2 pipelines
  • Properties of CO2 and impact of impurities (to be also rediscussed in ops)


Effects of hydrogen on pipeline materials


  • Theory of hydrogen embrittlement
  • Possibility of cracking (HIC)
  • Effects on strength, ductility, fracture toughness, fatigue
  • Implications for welds (seam and girth)
  • Testing requirements / protocols


Differences Between Future Fuel and Natural Gas Pipelines


  • Code requirements (AS2885 (H2 CoP), ASME B31.12, AIGA / EIGA Guidelines, TD1 Supplement, DVGW G409, DNV etc.)
  • Operational requirements (pressure, flow rates etc.)
  • Risk consequences (hazardous radius, likelihood of explosion etc.)
  • Conversion of existing natural gas pipelines
  • Code guidance
  • Operational requirements
  • Repurposing methodology


Networking Session 17:00-18:00 – Drinks and canapes provided.



Day 2: (09:00 - 16:30)


Defect Assessment


  • Common defect types (crack-like defects, corrosion, dents, dent-gouges etc.)
  • Data requirements to assess defects.
  • Assessment techniques (BS 7910, API 579 etc.) and hydrogen knock-down factors.
  • Running fracture in CO2 pipelines


Integrity management of hydrogen pipelines


  • Requirements for an Integrity Management System (IMS) for a hydrogen pipeline
  • Comparison to IMS for a Natural Gas Pipeline


Integrity management of CO2 pipelines


  • Requirements for an Integrity Management System (IMS) for a CO2 pipeline
  • Comparison to IMS for a Natural Gas Pipeline


Integrity Management of Future Fuels Pipelines


  • Characteristic and threats associated with future fuels pipelines: Ammonia, LOHC, biogases


To Register:


Brisbane 30th – 31st July:

Sydney 5th – 6th August:


The cost of the training is $1850 AUD. The price includes catering for both days (morning/afternoon tea and lunch), a networking event on the evening of day 1 and all the materials for the course.
