The paper describes an algorithm for assessing pipeline systems (PLS) safety increase due to implementation of special means. The algorithm is based on structural reliability and Boolean variables theory and is a step-by-step calculation of safety increase for a potentially dangerous object (PDO) due to implementation of the i-th safety means. An example is given of assessing pipeline operational safety change as related to third party intervention (TPI) when using different safety measures.
