The existing underground natural gas pipeline system represents a relatively economical means for transporting hydrogen provided the hydrogen has no deleterious effects on the structural integrity of the pipeline. The phenomenon of hydrogen-environment embrittlement is reviewed, and areas of potential concern for hydrogen pipeline integrity have been identified. The results indicate that subcritical-crack growth in hydrogen would be a more severe problem in hard spots than in heat-affected zones. Recent results suggest that hydrogen degradation of fracture properties can be minimized by small additions of inhibitor gases to the hydrogen.
