Incidents associated with geohazards involving oil and gas pipelines can be avoided in most cases if there is an adequate program for monitoring pipelines, rights of way and triggering agents aimed at prevention.

Knowledge about how to manage geohazards is currently dispersed in the operators’ experiences, and it is necessary to compile a guide that will facilitate the selection of the appropriate technology for monitoring pipelines, rights of way and triggering agents.

This document explains the development of a project of the Regional Association of Oil, Gas and Biofuels Sector Companies in Latin America and the Caribbean – ARPEL, the deliverable of which will be a practical technical guide for companies operating in Latin America and the Caribbean for which geohazards represent one of the greatest risks to the integrity of oil and gas pipelines.
