Abstract: Oil and gas infrastructures worldwide face threats from both criminal and terrorist attacks, the latter being the main threat aimed at disruption of energy supplies. In this contribution the recent and current status of oil and gas infrastructures in jeopardy through malicious attacks, documented in the newly created JRC/IPSC database MAEID (Malicious Attack on Energy Infrastructures Database), are presented. Counter measures focused on target protection and perpetrator suppression are also provided. An effective response requires a common approach at EU level within the European Programme for Critical Infrastructure Protection (EPCIP) framework and needs actions inside the EU as well as in the producing and transporting countries.
