Abstract

This paper uses the Geographical Information Systems (GIS) technique to generate an optimal
oil pipeline route in Malaysia’s oil rich Baram Field. The project aims to ensure the generated route has
the highest utility to the public, in addition to minimizing harmful impacts to people and the natural
environment. Inputs from pipeline host communities where the pipelines will pass were seriously
considered when determining the relative preferences of the various factors affecting the route (Weightings).
This approach significantly increases the reliability and acceptability of the generated route. ESRI’s ArcGIS
spatial analyst tool was deployed for data analysis and interpretation. Consequently, a more systematic,
effective, and reliable pipeline routing process was developed.
