Project Title:

Alaska's Oil and Gas Infrastructure: Risk Assessment Peer Review
PIN: SASP-L-08-01-A        

Major Unit:

Transportation Research Board

Sub Unit: Studies and Special Programs Division

RSO: Huey, Beverly

Subject/Focus Area:

Project Scope
This TRB/NRC committee will provide a peer review of a proposed design for a comprehensive risk assessment of Alaska's oil and gas infrastructure. The risk assessment will include: 1) a one-time engineering-oriented appraisal of the condition of the infrastructure; 2) an identification, quantification, and evaluation of current and future significant risks from a systems-level perspective; and 3) a methodology by which mitigation and management options can be evaluated. In addition to the review, the committee will recommend improvements to the risk assessment design that would assist the state in achieving its goals (e.g., determination of appropriate scope to focus limited resources, a comparison of the feasibility of top-down and bottom-up approaches, and options for encouraging industry participation).

The project is sponsored by the State of Alaska via Shannon & Wilson, Inc.

The approximate start date for the project is March 28, 2009.

A letter report will be issued at the end of the project in approximately 12 months.

Project Duration: 12 months
