Assessing Non-technical Risks from Pipeline Spills using GIS
Track: Pipeline and Gas Utilities
Authors: Simon Ross
This paper will summarise an approach for rapidly screening environmental and social risks from pipeline spills. It will address potential data sources for the development of a robust baseline database to support the screening process and how spatial analysis can be applied to characterise high consequence areas. The conclusions will consider the benefits of GIS for rapid application of screening criteria across large asset footprints and the sharing of risk mapping outputs to stakeholders.
