A risk management framework, consisting of geohazard identification, assessment and management, can be used to significantly reduce pipeline failure rates from geohazards compared to industry averages. Since the late 1990s, BGC Engineering Inc. (BGC) has supported pipeline operators with geohazard management programs. In December 2017, geohazard inventories had been completed for over 300,000 km of pipelines, with the data stored in BGC’s online geohazard management system, Cambio™. Pipeline failures (defined as leaks or ruptures) resulting from hydrotechnical or geotechnical hazards have been tracked for pipelines at differing levels of risk management, from cases where only inventories were created to...
