Abstract

The paper reviews statistical information about impacts of extreme natural phenomena and factors on accident rate of Russia's gas transmission system (GTS) and their consequences to secure sustainable gas supply. Special attention is given to anthropogenic factors that worsen emergency situation. Data on rare natural phenomena occurring in the territory of Russia is compared with parameters of emergency situations that affects the GTS elements/components. The authors also highlight the role of climate information and services intended to enhance gas supply sustainability under the global climate change. Natural risks to the GTS are analyzed and evaluated and decision making based on available climate information is considered.
