Abstract This report (update of PARLOC 92 - see CIS 94-1751) describes the collection and analysis of data on incidents involving loss of containment from offshore pipelines operated in the North Sea. The pipeline database and incident database compiled during earlier studies have been updated to include information to the end of 1993. The causes and consequences of loss of containment incidents are examined, and incident frequencies are considered in relation to pipeline location, cause of failure, line type, line size and contents.
