Abstract: Current knowledge on the practice of earthquake engineering for oil and gas pipeline systems is presented. Such systems typically consist of buried oil, gas, or product pipelines and aboveground facilities, including pumping and compressor stations, storage tanks for hydrocarbon products, and miscellaneous terminal facilities. Topics covered include: Description of seismic hazards; quantification of seismic hazards; design criteria considerations for pipeline systems; differential ground movement effects on buried pipes; wave propagation effects on buried pipelines; seismic response and design of liquid storage tanks; seismic response analysis of structures, equipment, and aboveground pipelines; and operations and maintenance considerations.
