Chapter 7 - Jewett pipeline events
This Chapter develops estimates of damages for pipeline release events. It begins by summarizing key characteristics of the Jewett pipeline that influence the magnitude of potential damages. It then estimates the probability of both a puncture and a rupture event based on data from the FutureGen report and a review of Office of Pipeline Safety accident data. For each forecast event, it then develops a potential number of effects based on the location of the event on the pipeline (e.g., whether a puncture occurs at mile 20 or mile 40). It concludes by estimating damages based on this study’s Monte Carlo results.
