Collection of safety related data has become more important as a result of increasing interest shown by local, national and international authorities responsible for safe gas transmission.

The objective of the initiative of EGIG was to provide a broad basis for statistical use, giving a more realistic picture of the frequencies and probabilities of incidents than would be possible with the individual data of each company considered separately.

The objectives of this EGIG website are:

  • to demonstrate the continuing high safety level of European gas transmission pipelines;
  • to provide non-EGIG members with the best available failure data on gas pipeline incidents.
