The future in the field of energy transportation calls for various new carriers among which hydrogen can play a dominant role. The paper presents the reasons for a possible interest in this fuel, and the problems which can be found in hydrogen transport pipelines. The following aspects are dealt with in detail: charcteristics of the pipeline compressor-turbine pumping stations; general aspects of pipelines for energy carrier transport; hydrogen combustion performance in gas turbine combustors. As a conclusion, it should be pointed out that only minor problems have to be solved, allowing hydrogen to be the transition fuel over the next few decades.
