Third party major accident hazard pipeline (MAHP) infringement

Third party damage to underground services of all types continues to be a source of danger and when the underground service is a Major Accident Hazard Pipeline (MAHP) such as a high-pressure gas main or a petrochemical pipeline then the consequences of a rupture can be devastating to people and the environment.

The aim of the report was to produce a case study to illustrate the sequence of events and the underlying factors of the incident, as well as to communicate the lessons that can be learned for risk management.
