A qualitative analysis for determining axis of a gas pipeline in view of general risk is outlined in the paper. The increasing building of gas pipelines for energy transportation vehicle, the importance of risk associated to this transport is gained strong importance. Risk assessment is an extremely useful tool in providing a framework in which to identify the possible hazards and determine the risks associated with gas pipelines. The determination of route, thickness, diameter and segment lengths is the major factor of constructing gas pipelines. The paper is presenting this risk in general and in a qualitative manner.
