    Abstract The objective of this study is to determine the nature and
    spatial distribution of the hazards associated with the
    transport of petroleum products in the Region. The
    study included consideration of petroleum transportation
    by road, rail, sea and pipelines in the Wellington Region.
    The study comprised a review of relevant literature,
    collection of data from petroleum companies and other
    agencies, and an assessment of the accident potential,
    likelihood of spill and the regional variation of the
    hazards associated with petroleum transport. Specific
    areas of risk, such as road tunnels, road-rail crossings,
    urban areas and water supply lakes, are also highlighted.
    Measures to manage the risks arising from petroleum
    transportation are discussed in the report.
