Abstract The purpose of this study was to update and improve confidence in the statistical information currently available to assess the frequency of loss of containment associated with operation of North Sea pipelines. Two databases were compiled: an incident database containing a description of each reported incident and data on the pipeline or lines affected; a pipeline database containing details of all North Sea pipelines. The collation and contents of the databases are described in detail along with their use in the assessment of factors affecting the frequency of incidents. In annex: glossary of terms.
