UK government considers naming NSTA offshore hydrogen transport and storage regulator

World Oil Staff April 24, 2023

(WO) — The UK government has opened a consultation on future regulatory arrangements for offshore hydrogen, which is seeking views on proposals for a ‘first layer’ of arrangements for transport and storage.

The consultation, which is open to 22 May, proposes to extend the NSTA’s regulatory remit to become the licensing and consenting authority for offshore hydrogen storage and pipelines transport.

The NSTA welcomes this consultation, a key step towards realizing the government ambition of 10GW of low carbon hydrogen production by 2030, and look forward to continuing our work with government and industry to support the development of the UK hydrogen economy.
