Steel Material Performance for Hydrogen Transport and Storage

November 10, 2022
Vallourec
Hydrogen is set to play a key role in the energy transition acting as a low-emission energy carrier for various applications. To ensure safe transport and storage of compressed gaseous hydrogen, steels must be proven resistant to such environments, since hydrogen is also known to affect mechanical properties of some materials, a phenomenon named hydrogen embrittlement. Based on Vallourec’s comprehensive expertise in developing safe and tight products for the transportation and storage of hydrogen, this webcast will discuss hydrogen embrittlement and the resistance of steel materials, analyze testing methodologies and present the results of the tests performed by Vallourec on a selection of steel grades for OCTG pipes, line pipes and pressure vessels in the presence of pure H2 gas, and conclude on its qualified product offering and future developments.
