Pipeline Incidents Continue to Impact Residents – FracTracker Alliance



In this compilation of reports, we can see that the majority of incidents (64%) and damages (also 64%) are caused by hazardous liquids pipelines, even though the liquids account for less than 8% of the total mileage of the network. The survey also shows 1,283 out of the 3,853 (32%) incidents occurred in pipelines that were 10 years old or younger. A large number of these incidents are unforced errors, due to poor quality equipment or operator error.
