Cross-Country Pipeline Risk Assessments and Mitigation Strategies describes the process of pipeline risk management from pipeline hazard identification using all applicable techniques, qualitative risk assessment, consequence modelling/evaluation, pipeline failure rates and modes and risk calculations and evaluation, as well as risk mitigation and control strategies.

In this book the potential modes and causes of failure of pipelines used in the oil and gas industry are evaluated based on a wide range of data that covers more than 40 years of operating history. The book details a consistent approach that allows for proper estimation of potential risk and how it can be mitigated. This is combined with consequence modelling to fully calculate the different forms of risk presented by pipelines. Cross-Country Pipeline Risk Assessments and Mitigation Strategies is an essential resource for professionals and experts involved in pipeline design as well as researchers and students studying risk assessment, particularly in relation to pipelines.

Key Features

  • Offers a practical risk assessment model for pipelines without the need for complicated, expensive software
  • Describes a new systematic approach for pipeline risk control and mitigation reflecting actual pipeline conditions and operating status
  • Provides examples of all pipeline hazard identification techniques and how are they used to produce consistent results
  • Includes a newly developed Excel tool to allow users to easily access and use the PipeFAIT tool


Professionals involved in pipeline design and risk assessment working in oil and gas and petrochemical industries; university researchers and students studying risk management and assessments and pipeline risk assessment in particular
