Abstract: Identification of pipeline hazards associated with the different pipeline system functions is essential for risk analysis. Incident data in the natural gas and hazardous liquids transmission networks around the world are examined following a review of official sources. Frequency data are analysed by incident causes, the size and functions of the systems. Failure frequencies in gas and liquid lines in Europe, the US and the former Soviet Union, are decreasing. European oil failure and US gas casualty rates are connected with the parts other than the main body of the pipeline. Acomparison between European and US gas frequency data, derived under common constrains, shows that valuable information can be lost under limiting incident collection criteria.
