An analysis of major accidents in pipelines: The societal risk
The present work examines a sample of several hundreds of past pipeline incidents around the world, analyses the main causes and consequences of the events and attempts to compare risk estimates. The gravity of the sample cases is used as a base to compare pipeline accidents with major accidents in fixed installations notified in the Major Accident Reporting System of the European Commission.
