Evolving to meet changing energy needs
At AGIG, we have a Low Carbon Strategy that seeks to ensure our gas transmission pipelines and distribution networks meet the needs of our customers in a sustainable way.
The Dampier Bunbury Pipeline (DBP) is one of the largest capacity natural gas pipelines in Australia and the backbone of energy infrastructure in the west. Its ability to store and transport hydrogen is currently being explored.
About the Western Australian Feasibility Study
This study builds upon AGIG’s investigations into introduction hydrogen into low-pressure gas distribution networks by focusing on the large-scale DBP asset.
Supported by the Western Australian Government with a grant of $216,000, this work aligns with the State’s vision to accelerate a renewable hydrogen future through its Western Australian Renewable Hydrogen Strategy which aims to blend at least 10% renewable hydrogen in its pipelines and networks by 2030.
As a result of this study, there is now a clear pathway for declaring a pipeline section as suitable for use with hydrogen/natural gas blends. This pathway includes material testing, additional operational constraints and a realignment of regulatory and commercial frameworks.
