Chapter 6 provides the concepts, elements, process, and methodologies for assessing the integrity risks in pipelines. The chapter starts defining risk assessment and control as elements of pipeline risk management allocating its processes within a PLAN-DO-CHECK-ACT or management system framework. Core risk concepts such as perspectives toward risk, uncertainty, and conservatism, individual and societal risk, and risk aversion are also explained to holistically understand the pipeline risk results.
