Abstract

The present study identifies the main accidents' factors and causes for oil pipeline located in Siberia and operated in special climatic conditions. Various types of pipeline accident scenarios were modeled. It is showed that the most dangerous scenarios are oil spills fire and oil vapor explosion due to the loss of piping integrity (rupture) of the pipeline's section, laying on marshlands and oil spill on the water surface due to the loss of piping integrity (puncture). The most probable scenario is oil spills fire due to the loss of piping integrity (puncture) of the pipeline's section, laying on dry lands and marshlands. To estimate the scenarios event tree analysis is used. Also such risk indexes as individual, societal, public and potential risks were determined.
