Pipeline Risk Management Manual: Ideas, Techniques, and Resources (3rd Edition)


File Size: 10.81 Mb

Description
The first edition of this book was written at a time when formal risk assessments of pipelines were fairly rare. To be sure, there were some repairheplace models out there, some maintenance prioritization schemes, and the occasional regulatory approval study, but, generally, those who embarked on a formal process for assessing pipeline risks were doing so for very specific needs and were not following a prescribed methodology.

The situation is decidedly different now. Risk management is increasingly being mandated by regulations. A risk assessment seems to be the centerpiece of every approval process and every pipeline litigation. Regulators are directly auditing risk assessment programs. Risk management plans are increasingly coming under direct public scrutiny.
