Proximity and ventilation requirements for distribution networks adapted to future fuels

December 2nd, 2021

R&D Focus Areas:
Pipeline and network operations, Safety and standards

Lead Organisation:
University of Wollongong

Future Fuels CRC


Start date:
July 2019

Project summary description:
This project aims to undertake experimental, analytical and numerical studies to provide clear guidance on ventilation requirements in enclosed gas metering stations and the safe proximity distances between gas mains and buildings for gas distribution networks in Australia. These guidelines are particularly relevant for situations where the fuel is changing from natural gas towards hydrogen.
