ABSTRACT

Reliable and safe operation of pipelines is one of the basic requirements of natural gas transmission. Construction of new routes but also running existing pipelines requires
planning and risk assessment. Pipeline Integrity Management is a system that requires collection and processing of information not only about the route and condition of piping systems, but also an analysis of all factors that can contribute significantly to the
fail of integrity. Qualitative risk analysis is used for the effective decision of the operator to optimizing operation and maintenance of gas facilities. This requires monitoring the impact of environment on the failure of pipe systems, the possibility of visualization pipeline route and surrounding risk assessment and consistent the presence
of the ancient settlements, protected areas, respectively industrial zones. This contribution aims describe the tools and methods that offer GIS systems for risk analysis of Gas pipelines and methods for their visualization in relation to the applied preventive measures during their life cycle.

Keywords: pipeline integrity management, risk analysis, environment, modelling, geographic information systems.
