Analytical review of the features of operation, expert analysis of the technical condition, and support of the reliability of the main gas pipelines at transportation of natural gas and hydrogen mixtures through them was performed. Proceeding from modern concepts of hydrogen degradation of pipe steels, conditions are considered which are required for safe use of the currently available gas transportation system for this purpose, in particular, with different hydrogen concentration in the mixture. Additional requirements were formulated as to evaluation of the acceptability of typical defects, and procedure of their repair by pressure welding methods. 33 Ref., 2 Tabl., 4 Fig.
Keywords: gas-hydrogen mixture, main gas pipeline, hydrogen degradation, technical state, technical state, reliability, repair
