This study reviews and analyzes the U.S. petroleum pipeline system, accidental spills, and spill prevention programs. It concludes that improved pipeline spill prevention measures are needed, because pipeline systems are aging, population densities near lines are increasing dramatically, and new lines are expected to be larger and longer. An approach to developing a spill prevention program is presented. Then, recommended spill prevention programs for individual pipeline systems are described. These programs consist of scheduled inspection and/or leak detection methods and are shown to be capable of significantly reducing the risk of serious spills. Practical considerations such as the cost of inspections and spillage are also included.
