The paper shows an overview of general characteristics, design, maintenance and hazards of natural gas transportation systems. Paper analysis starts from the description of the natural gas distribution systems, which represent the final section of the natural gas transportation. Since accidents on distribution gas system could threatening the urban safety, risk analysis needs to be assessed. For this purpose, the main hazardous consequences that may happen after a failure of the natural gas pipeline are defined. Correct design, installation and maintenance are required to reduce both frequency and impact of these accidents: a brief description of the principal technical requirements is reported.

Abstract

The paper shows an overview of general characteristics, design, maintenance and hazards of natural gas transportation systems. Paper analysis starts from the description of the natural gas distribution systems, which represent the final section of the natural gas transportation. Since accidents on distribution gas system could threatening the urban safety, risk analysis needs to be assessed. For this purpose, the main hazardous consequences that may happen after a failure of the natural gas pipeline are defined. Correct design, installation and maintenance are required to reduce both frequency and impact of these accidents: a brief description of the principal technical requirements is reported.
