RP2.4-02 Damage to distribution assets

Executive Summary

External damage to buried infrastructure remains the highest risk to the public posed by the gas system despite many measures in place aimed to prevent and mitigate this risk, including specifically the Dial Before You Dig System. Since 2019, the larger Australian distribution businesses have been collecting and collating damage reports electronically. This data now provides the basis for better analysis of the causal factors influencing the risk to distribution assets. This project aims to characterise that risk and examine options for risk reduction.
