Abstract: The new North Sea-Italy Transitgas pipeline passes through Switzerland from north to south, and crosses the Alps in a series of tunnels. The Swiss section was a challenge for the project management because of various difficulties: in addition to the topographic difficulties in the Alpine and Jura sections, the project passes densely-populated areas and has to fulfill strict environmental and safety requirements. The 48-in pipeline is currently under construction, with most of the safety problems now solved. An important prerequisite for the success of the project was a generic study on the risk from the Swiss natural gas industry plants and pipelines. This generic study, written in the early 1990s, describes a standardized methodology elaborated jointly by the industry and the authorities, and served as a base for the risk assessment of the Transitgas pipeline. Since the risk assessment had to be made public, the official support of the methodology of the assessment was one of the keys to a successful implementation of the project.
