Terrain and Geohazard Challenges Facing Onshore Oil and Gas Pipelines. International Conference

This monograph presents the proceedings of a three-day international conference on terrain and geohazard challenges facing onshore oil and gas pipelines. The conference was held in June 2004 in London (United Kingdom) and was organized by the Institution of Civil Engineers, in association with British Petroleum Exploration and others. The proceedings offer 50 papers, organized into 6 sections: keynote papers; terrain and geohazard assessment; BTC pipeline examples of assessment; environment; design; construction; and operations and reinstatement. Specific topics include technical and geopolitical challenges facing onshore oil and gas pipelines; terrain, ground conditions, and geohazards; mapping of landslide hazard and risk along the pipeline route; desert pipeline routing; assessing earthquake hazards; remote sensing; hazards in mountainous terrain; erosion risk assessment; the environmental impact assessment of large pipeline projects; managing frost heave of gas pipelines; pipeline insurance; costs and routing principles; pipeline construction; field operations and risk management; the establishment and management of vegetation; site restoration; and automated monitoring. Each paper includes maps, figures, and tables, and concludes with a list of references. The book concludes with an author index.
