The Netherlands - Shell is the first company to sign a contract to use HyTransPortRTM, a hydrogen pipeline being built by Gasunie in collaboration with the Port of Rotterdam Authority from the Maasvlakte to Pernis in the port of Rotterdam.

The hydrogen pipeline will be built over a 32-kilometer route. The pipe will be 24 inches in diameter (61cm). The transition from CO2-emitting fossil fuels and raw materials to CO2-free hydrogen should result in a significant reduction in CO2 emissions. Hydrogen is used as a raw material for chemical products and as an energy carrier for industrial processes where electrification cannot meet the requirements, such as high temperature processes in the petrochemical industry.

The HyTransPortRTM pipeline transports hydrogen from the conversion park to Pernis. The hydrogen pipeline will be operational by the end of 2024 or the beginning of 2025. The pipeline will eventually be linked to both the national and international hydrogen networks.

How much advantage do you think a company like Shell will garner by being first to jump on this opportunity? Are other oil giants clamoring to do the same or is this them going out on a limb looking for that big potential 'early mover' reward?
