Measuring viscosity to investigate offshore hydrogen storage potential

Depleted oil and gas reservoirs have the potential to store vast amounts of hydrogen. However, there is very little data on the viscosity of hydrogen and hydrogen mixtures at the relevant temperature and pressure ranges. As part of HYDROGENi, Benjamin Betken from Ruhr University Bochum has conducted the first viscosity measurements of hydrogen and a hydrogen-methane mixture at expected reservoir conditions, using the ECCSEL VISC-DENS facility, operated by SINTEF Energy Research.

Hydrogen a key climate measure in new report from the Norwegian Environment Agency

Klimatiltak i Norge mot 2030
On Friday 2 June 2023, the Norwegian Environment Agency launched the “Climate measures in Norway towards 2030” report, which which analyses 85 different measures for reducing emissions from all sectors in order to achieve Norway's 2030 climate goals.

Hydrogen featured significantly in these measures, both in its use in industrial processes and as an alternative fuel.

HYDROGENi is a partner in the Hydrogen Valley Mid-Norway initiative

HYDROGENi has become a partner in the Hydrogen Valley Mid-Norway initiative. It launched at Fremtidens Industri (FI) on Monday 8 May 2023.

“Hydrogen Valleys” are EU-led initiatives that aim to establish operative hydrogen value chains at a local level through collaboration between private and public sectors in the area. The hope is that these individual chains will pave the way for a fully realised hydrogen economy as an alternative to fossil fuels.
