France’s GRTgaz to Explore Market Participation for Hydrogen Transport on BarMar

French gas transmission system operator GRTgaz opened a Call for Interest, or invitation to participate, to determine the viability of building a hydrogen transport pipeline from the French part of the BarMar pipeline to a local storage facility. The BarMar undersea gas pipeline will connect Spain and France by the end of decade from Barcelona to Marseille.

GRTGaz Call for Interest is for a section of the pipeline from the Fos-su-Mer port, the French entry point of the BarMar pipeline, to Manosque, also in southern France.

The invitation to participate aims to confirm interest in this section of the pipeline, and will be split into two phases.

The non-binding first phase is expected to open on March 10 and is for industry to express interest and to detail the type of infrastructure needed, while the second phase would sell transport capacities and determine investments.

The confirmation of market interest will be followed by technical studies, which will detail the route, environmental impact and technical solutions.

“This new phase of the project is the last step before offering the market transport capacity in the Fos-sur-Mer area,” CEO of GRTgaz Trouvé said.
