According to the failure history and the results of failure analysis, the failure of oil & gas pipeline in China was mainly caused by incorrect operations, manufacturing defects, corrosion and third-party damage. Based on a case of failure analysis, such problems as how to develop a standard template of pipeline failure incident / accident report, how to set a guideline of pipeline failure analysis and further improve the failure database of pipeline were discussed. In addition, the relationship between the prediction/prevention technology and risk assessment was also analyzed. Finally, a brief description about how to carry out the research of pipeline failure prediction/prevention technology and promote its application in China, especially for large-diameter, high-pressure gas pipeline was presented.
