Project description:

The purpose of this project is to develop unique modelling capabilities to predict the migration behaviour of hydrogen and hydrogen-blended gas leaks from buried pipelines, assess the differences between leak behaviours in natural gas pipeline systems and those with hydrogen or hydrogen blends, and to inform the processes and technologies needed to effectively detect these leaks. Experimental testing will be conducted by C-FER Technologies in Edmonton, AB, at both small and large scales to validate the numerical models.
