European cross-country oil pipelines
The Concawe Oil Pipelines Management Group (OPMG) has collected data on the safety and environmental performance of oil pipelines in Europe since 1971. Information on annual throughput and traffic, spillage incidents and in-line inspection activities are gathered yearly by Concawe via on-line questionnaires. The results are analysed and published annually to show the yearly performance and also a full historical analysis since 1971, effectively creating an evergreen document updated every year. The following article provides an introduction to the content of the latest 2015 report, which can be downloaded from the Concawe website.
