Pipeline risk assessment

Assess active threats on your pipelines with risk assessments

Risk Assessments are common in the pipeline industry. Understanding the risks that an operator´s pipelines are facing is crucial to investigate inspection and maintenance strategies.

There are many different types using varying methods and for differing purposes. The Risk Assessment approach supported in PRIMS is designed to help pipeline operators optimize their efforts to maintain pipeline safety by understanding how and why risks vary along the pipeline and over time. This way, they can direct resources to where they are most effective. Our risk assessment module uses the W. Kent Muhlbauer method or custom variants are also possible.

Our PRIMS Risk Assessment module allows definition of many varying risk calculations but all use similar sorts of data. It collects inputs that may or may not vary along the pipeline regarding potential causes and consequences of loss of containment.

Our methods to assess the risks on your assets

Pipeline Risk Method Modelling

Our Pipeline Information Management System - PRIMS - has the capability to define and apply multiple risk models such as the W. Kent Muhlbauer method or custom variants if required.



Risk Profiling


To make the results of Risk Assessment easier to understand, the representations include typical thematic mapping with colour coding according to levels of risk. This can be defined and displayed from any factors included in the entire set of Risk Assessment
calculations.

Regulatory Compliance Check

Our regulatory compliance check compares the current situation to regulations and best–in-class practices that applies to both prescriptive and aspirational (ALARP) regimes. We review regulations and applicable standards, compare practices to regulations, resulting in a gap analysis report.
