Oil and gas development projects are major sources of social and environmental problems particularly in oil-rich developing countries like Nigeria. Yet, data paucity hinders our understanding and ability to quantify the direction and magnitude of events. This thesis contributes to the field by adopting an interdisciplinary approach to improve our understanding of the links between oil-related socio-environmental problems and pipeline operation in the Nigerian oil and gas industry.
