Framework to support decision-making process in Hydrocarbon Pipeline Risk Management: Colombian case
This work illustrates three tools to support Risk Management in pipeline transportation of hazardous materials. First, it was developed an approach to determine pipeline failure probability due to landslides. Second, it was proposed an approach to determine pipeline failure probability due to corrosion defects obtained from In-Line (ILI) inspections. Finally, it was developed an approach to localize sectioning valves for loss control. These tools were designed to support a decision-making process regarding an Asset Management, based on the operating conditions from the Colombian territory by Los Andes University. The aim of them is increase the corresponding safety levels from the territory (together with other existing approaches).
