Management of Threats of Damage to Hydrocarbon Pipelines by Third Parties

Cartagena de Indias, Colombia

Importance of the workshop

Pipeline integrity management is the set of coordinated actions whose purpose is to maintain the performance laid down in their design, managing efficiently the associated risks and the consequences of a failure as regards environment, health, safety, corporate image, customers, economic losses and physical security.

One of the forms and mechanisms of failures that has increased in the region and has greater consequences for pipeline operating companies is that of actions by third parties that are taken both involuntarily (effects caused by ignorance of the existence of the pipelines) and voluntarily (illegal taps for theft from pipelines). It is necessary that the different players in the oil and gas industry work together to prevent and mitigate the consequences of this problem.

The Pipelines and Terminals Committee of ARPEL (Regional Association of Oil, Gas and Biofuels Sector Companies in Latin America and the Caribbean), convinced of the impact and importance of this issue for the industry, decided to organize this workshop, unique in the region, on “Management of Threats of Damage to Hydrocarbon Pipelines by Third Parties,” bringing together all the stakeholders involved.
