Technological accidents caused by floods: The case of the Saga prefecture oil spill, Japan 2019
Modeling the Evolution of Major Storm-Disaster-Induced Accidents in the Offshore Oil and Gas Industry
A novel risk analysis framework is proposed for systematically identifying and analyzing the evolution of accident causes, which weakens the subjectivity of traditional methods and achieves quantitative assessment of the importance of accident evolution nodes.
Lessons learned from the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake: A case study of tsunami risk assessment in a Japanese chemical corporation
Natural hazard triggering technological disasters (Natech) pose a major risk to chemical industries. Natural disasters, such as earthquakes, floods, and tsunamis, may cause massive fires, explosions,
Natural hazard triggered technological risks in the Yangtze River Economic Belt, China
This work selected the Yangtze River Economic Belt as a typical case to study the Natech risk triggered by floods, geological disasters, and typhoons at the regional or watershed level in China and developed four types of risk indicators representing risk sources, natural hazard factors, control levels, and vulnerabilities.
Natural events driven domino effect


Petroleum and Hazardous Material Releases from Industrial Facilities Associated with Hurricane Katrina
To reduce the risk of hazardous material releases and speed the return to normal operations under these difficult conditions, greater attention should be devoted to risk-based facility design and improved prevention and response planning.
Impact of the 11 March 2011, Great East Japan earthquake and tsunami on the chemical industry
The Great East Japan earthquake and tsunami damaged or destroyed many industrial facilities housing or processing hazardous substances, such as refineries, petrochemical facilities and other types of
Industrial accidents triggered by natural hazards: an emerging risk issue
Abstract. The threat of natural hazards impacting chemical facilities and infrastructures with the subsequent release of hazardous substances has been recognised as an emerging risk which is likely
Emerging Issues for Natech Disaster Risk Management in Europe
There is growing concern about the potential effects of natural disaster‐triggered technological (natech) disasters. The chlorine releases in the Czech Republic following the floods that swept across
When Natural and Technological Disasters Collide: Lessons from the Turkey Earthquake of August 17, 1999
Analysis of the effects of strong earthquakes on hazardous materials stored at industrial facilities in urban areas can provide valuable insights for future risk management practice. In this study,
Performance of Storage Tanks in Oil Facilities Damaged by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita
This paper presents a qualitative description of structural damage in aboveground steel tanks in oil refineries and facilities, which were observed during reconnaissance missions to the states of
