This study concentrates on risk factors in oil field pipeline systems and covers identification of failure rate and reasons of failure comparison of the failure data, which are collected from oilfield pipeline systems located in South East Turkey. There are many methods and techniques to reduce or eliminate risk factors in pipeline systems. In this study, quantitative risk assessment method, which depends on statistical calculations, was applied. Monte Carlo Simulation was used to assess the risk in the system. This study focuses on identification of relationship between all parameters. History matching frequency, identification of critical factors, probability of density function have been estimated and calculated. The most significant failures are identified as corrosion, third party damage, mechanical failure, operational failure, weather effect and sabotage.

Risk assessment of petroleum transportation pipeline in some Turkish oil fields
Öğütçü, Gökçen; Akın, Serhat; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2004)
In this thesis, quantitative risk assessment study of several oil field transportation lines that belong to a private oil production company located in S. East Turkey has been conducted. In order to achieve this goal, first primary risk drivers were identified. Then relative ranking of all pipeline segments were conducted. Quantitative risk assessment was based on Monte Carlo simulations and a relative scoring index approach. In these simulations frequency of occurrence of pipeline failures for different oi...
Parameter optimization of steel fiber reinforced high strength concrete by statistical design and analysis of experiments
Ayan, Elif; Saatçioğlu, Ömer; Department of Industrial Engineering (2004)
This thesis illustrates parameter optimization of compressive strength, flexural strength and impact resistance of steel fiber reinforced high strength concrete (SFRHSC) by statistical design and analysis of experiments. Among several factors affecting the compressive strength, flexural strength and impact resistance of SFRHSC, five parameters that maximize all of the responses have been chosen as the most important ones as age of testing, binder type, binder amount, curing type and steel fiber volume fract...
Groundwater Impact assessment of Tailings Storage Facility Western Turkey
Peksezer Sayıt, Ayşe; Yazıcıgil, Hasan (null; 2015-12-18)
The purpose of this study is to assess potential impacts of leakage from the base of TSF on groundwater quality both in operational and post-closure period of a mine site in western Turkey. For this purpose, analytical and 2-D and 3-D numerical models are used together. The potential leakage rate of sulphate-bearing solution from the base of TSF is determined from analytical model. 2-D finite element models (SEEP/W and CTRAN/W) are used to simulate unsaturated flow conditions and advective-dispersive contam...
Efficiency analysis of Turkish natural gas distribution companies by using data envelopment analysis method
Erturk, Mehmet; Turut-Asik, Serap (2011-03-01)
This paper analyzes the performance of 38 Turkish natural gas distribution companies by using a non-parametric method, Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). The results are used to determine the most proper model specification, to detect the important criteria affecting the efficiency levels, and to find the common characteristics of the most inefficient firms. We find that public firms compared to private firms, non-tender firms compared to tender firms, large firms compared to small firms and firms operating i...
Uncertainties in Reservoir limit test results - Effect of input parameters
Altinbay, G.; Akın, Serhat (2015-01-01)
Reservoir parameters from the well test data are essential for reservoir management. Especially the identification the presence of the reservoir boundaries is important for an appraisal well testing. Providing reserve estimation, identifying new well locations and well placement and avoiding dry holes are some important outcomes. However more work on precision of the input data is needed before using the calculated well test parameters. Lots of ambiguity in the results obtained from well tests should be con...
