Dynamic Risk
Sponsoring & Exhibiting

Dynamic Risk will be participating in Clarion’s Pipeline Pigging and Integrity Management (PPIM) Conference taking place in Houston, Texas from February 12th – 16th, 2024.

In parallel with the demands for greater pipeline safety, reliability, and efficiency – and the explosive growth in the market for technologies to help meet those demands – PPIM has evolved to become the industry’s primary forum for reporting new developments and field experience, and for showcasing the relevant tools and systems for pipeline inspection, assessment, and repair, as well as regulatory compliance and Integrity Management Programs. It is the place where the needs of pipeline operators and the capabilities of service and equipment suppliers intersect.

Presentation: Sensitivity Analysis in the Oil and Gas Pipeline Risk Analysis: A Comprehensive Review and Comparative Study

Date & Time: Thursday, February 15th – 1:30 p.m.

Sensitivity analysis is paramount for improving the accuracy and robustness of oil and gas pipeline quantitative risk models. As a result, sensitivity analysis of the risk models is now a requirement under §192.917(4)c of the Gas Mega Rule – Part 2 for gas pipelines. The inherent complexity and interdependency of factors influencing pipeline risk require an in-depth comprehension of the sensitivity analysis methods. Fitness-for-service calculators are integrated into some quantitative models; though extensive validation work has been reported, a proper sensitivity analysis has often been omitted in benchmark studies and reviews.

The primary objective of this paper is to provide an in-depth review of various sensitivity analysis techniques, highlighting their strengths, limitations, and practical applications in pipeline risk assessment. The comparative analysis is conducted based on multiple criteria, comprising computational efficiency, accuracy, ability to capture interactions between risk variables, and suitability for handling uncertainties inherent to pipeline systems. Real-world case studies are provided to illustrate the practical application and results of some of these techniques.
