Broad adoption of hydrogen as a new energy source depends on large-scale, cost-effective transmission, and owners of pipeline infrastructure will play a critical role in meeting this challenge by repurposing existing assets to hydrogen service. The associated benefits of repurposing existing infrastructure may include mitigated decommissioning burdens, and security of future energy supply contracts. However, introducing hydrogen into existing pipelines represents significant complexity and risk given the differentiated properties of hydrogen over natural gas.

The Pipeline Transition Alliance provides dependable, world class support to pipeline infrastructure owners across all project phases. The value we bring derives from the skill sets and expertise of each global partner that, together, allows us to cover the entire scope:

  • ROSEN is responsible for pipeline inspection, assessment, and integrity management services. ROSEN’s cutting edge inspection and testing technologies allow for rapid, dependable early-stage assessment and estimation.
  • DORIS undertakes engineering of the pipeline and associated hydrogen production and conditioning systems. With 60 years of experience in the energy industry, DORIS’ renowned gas processing engineering capabilities support the design of highly efficient and safe facilities.
  • SPIECAPAG provides Engineering, Procurement and Construction services for delivery of the re-purposed pipeline infrastructure along with new facilities as required to meet the client’s specifications and future demands.

Antony Loane, DORIS’ business development manager for Asia-Pacific, commented: “We’re able to provide our clients with confidence and clarity in understanding the risks and costs associated with introducing hydrogen into their assets. But the principal benefit comes from access to our cutting-edge technology and on-going experience from hydrogen transition projects we’re currently undertaking across the globe.”

Hernando Caceres, vice president business execution at ROSEN in Asia Pacific, emphasised the significance of this partnership, stating: “In forging this strategic alliance between Doris, ROSEN, and SPIECAPAG, we are positioning to deliver an integrated solution for hydrogen pipelines. Leveraging our combined expertise, we guide customers in repurposing existing pipelines while efficiently designing, building, and operating new ones. I believe this alliance is a critical step towards accelerating our customers’ ambitious energy transition plans, reinforcing our focus on sustainable solutions.”

Jason Paterson, SPIECAPAG’s business strategy & growth manager, added: “This alliance has been formed to provide asset owners with an ‘end to end’ pipeline transition service to assist with the re-purposing of existing pipeline infrastructure from natural gas to hydrogen, covering all stages of the project lifecycle. This combined partnership of world leaders in our respective fields now provides our customers with access to a formidable team of subject matter experts and technologies to assist with this transition”.
