Kinder Morgan’s Marine Risk Analysis
Submitted by: North Shore NOPE
The Marine Accident Risk Calculation System (MARCS) model, used in the proponent’s application, should not be used to assess the risk of an oil spill in this project because:
- It appears to be outdated relative to the state of modern statistical analysis;
- It includes statements without proper citation and when citations were found, the statements were found to be inaccurate;
- The quality of the review, reporting and documentation is below scientific standards.
