The paper deals with the issues devoted to reliability studies of gas distribution systems for complex energy supply of large industrialized areas. Given is a brief review of the reliability assessment methods, existing models for reliability assessment of the main pipelines, and their implementation. Special attention is paid to such reliability-specific properties as failure-free operation and maintainability of the elements constituting the gas distribution systems (linear sections and booster stations). These properties depend on the failure and recovery rates. Consideration is given to potentials of studying the impact of failure and recovery rates on integral indicators of gas distribution systems reliability. For that purpose mathematical models are proposed to be used for gas distribution systems reliability assessment using the analytical method of a ‘loss multiplication’ scheme. Reliability assessment of a conventional gas distribution system was taken as an example.
