Biden CO2, hydrogen pipeline dreams get wake-up call

Stantec’s Daniel Swanberg was featured in Forbes where he discusses the challenges with transporting CO2 and hydrogen via pipeline

The US Energy Department (DOE) faced a hard truth last month: Its aggressive plans to expand, and ideally retrofit, crude and natural gas pipelines to transport carbon emissions and blue hydrogen may be delayed.

“There are still a lot of challenges” in converting, building, and burying pipelines to accommodate CO2 and hydrogen, said Daniel Swanberg, energy practice leader in Houston for the global design and engineering company, Stantec, based in Edmonton, Alberta.

Swanberg was one of three-dozen energy experts from whom DOE Loan Programs Office chief Jigar Shah sought input about “carbon management” during a three-hour, closed-door workshop at S&P Global’s CERAWeek conference in Houston in March 2024.
