Major pipelines around the world transport large quantities of crude oil, natural gas and petroleum products. These pipelines are crucial to providing needed fuel to sustain vital functions, such as power generation, heating and transportation. Because of the hazardous properties of the products flowing through these pipelines, a rupture can cause serious environmental damage. And the economic impact of an unplanned shutdown can be severe.
Explore this interactive SAS Visual Analytics report to see how you can perform shutdown analysis to understand the potential cause-and-effects of various operational activities, such as insufficient maintenance or excavation near pipeline facilities.
