Gas pipelines, CO2 pipelines, hydrogen pipelines?

economics of CO2 and hydrogen pipelines

This model captures the energy economics of gas pipelines, CO2 pipelines and hydrogen pipelines. Specifically, we have modelled energy requirements using simple fluid mechanics, and modelled capex costs using past…

Midstream gas: pipelines have pricing power ?!

High utilization can provide hidden upside for transmission operators

FERC regulations are surprisingly interesting!! In theory, gas pipelines are not allowed to have market power. But they increasingly do have it: gas use is rising, on grid bottlenecks, volatile…

Midstream opportunities in the energy transition?

…for midstream companies. (8) Costs of midstream components are quantified in our research, such as oil pipelines at $2/bbl/1,000km, oil storage at $1.5/bbl, gas pipelines at $1/mcf/1,000km, gas fractionation at…

Pipeline costs: moving oil, products or other liquids?

…energy and CO2 intensities of different pipelines (below). Generally wider pipelines, correctly sized, with smooth internal surfaces will be the most energy efficient and have the lowest CO2 intensities. You…

CCS: what CO2 purity for transport and disposal?

CO2 purity required for various purposes. The highest purities are required by food, beverage, and medical purposes, as well as shipping and liquefaction. CO2 disposal has the highest variability. For any purpose the purity must still be at least 90%.

…CO2. But impurities require higher pressures before CO2 reaches supercriticality. Larger pipelines are also required to move larger quantities of gas at higher pressures. This matters because larger pipelines with…
