According to Tepco, they are going to restart the nitrogen gas injection into the suppression chamber of reactor1 on 5/8/2013.
6~7m3/h will be injected in order to “push out the retained hydrogen gas” and also “look into the effect of radiolysis of water within suppression chamber”, which implies Tepco admits hydrogen gas is being produced from the radiolysis of water.
If the hydrogen gas density goes over 2%, there is a possibility of further hydrogen explosion.
They injected nitrogen gas only one month ago. There is a possibility that hydrogen gas is being constantly produced in reactor1.
