India To Integrate Blended Hydrogen Into PIL Gas Network Assets
DNV has announced a collaboration with Pipeline Infrastructure Limited (PIL) to integrate blended hydrogen into PIL gas truckline assets in India. Hydrogen Industry Leaders investigates how it will boost India’s hydrogen economy.

The independent energy expert and assurance provider, DNV, is providing technical advice and support to PIL on the integration of hydrogen into its trunkline assets.

It includes advice and support on transmission pipelines, interconnects and spur lines, compressor, valve, and metering stations and equipment.

In addition, DNV will also look at the suitability of the existing network and related assets to incorporate hydrogen at a range of blending levels (5, 10, 15, 50 and 100 per cent).

Blending hydrogen with natural gas in the existing infrastructure is said to facilitate the use of a cleaner gas that can support India’s transition to a decarbonised future.

Market Area Manager – India, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka for Energy Systems at DNV, Varadaraj Salian, said: “This pioneering project will enable PIL to engage their stakeholders in developing and expediting realistic decarbonisation goals for which DNV is providing the right technical knowledge, global expertise, and best practices so that their operation is safe and sustainable.”
