World's largest hydrogen pipeline supply network
 

Challenges

Hydrogen pipeline supply challengesThe hydrogen pipeline expansion project presented an enormous number of engineering and logistical challenges. The list below represents some of those challenges.

  • Designing and developing a feasible route that minimized impacts to the local governments, communities, the environment, and our own critical safety requirements.
  • Securing 1,085 permanent landowner ROWs (right of ways) and over 300 temporary agreements
  • Acquiring numerous environmental permits and hundreds of non-environmental permits
  • Overcoming numerous construction challenges including three US Army Corps of Engineers flood protection levees within the Atchafalaya Basin Swamp and rivers, streams and highway crossings
  • Coordinating over 1000 people involved in working on various aspects of the project
  • Managing numerous changes to the design route and securing permit addendums as a result
  • Employing over 100,000 feet of direction drilling

Interesting factoids:

  • The hydrogen pipeline utilized welded construction resulting in more than 25,000 welds.
  • More than 24,000 forty foot long pipe sections were installed.
