Subject(s): Online resources: Bibl.nr: VTI P3702:281Location: Abstract: Pipeline incidents, population growth, urbanization, increasing energy demands, and increasing public opposition to the siting of new pipelines have combined to focus greater attention on the need for increased land use controls in the vicinity of pipelines and led to the request for this study. The purpose of this scoping study is to consider the feasibility of developing risk-informed guidance as one means of minimizing or mitigating hazards and risk to the public, pipeline workers, and the environment near existing and future transmission pipelines carrying natural gas, petroleum, and other hazardous liquids.
