This study presents an evaluation of associated impacts by leaks in fuel pipelines transportation. Often, the pipelines are built in public and private properties into rural and urban areas. The potential environmental impacts were evaluated using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). The study was applied for the Billings dam case, located in Brazil. The Expert Choice® software was used as a tool to implement AHP methodology. The evaluated fuels were: oil, natural gas and alcohol-based fuel. Fire, environmental contamination and toxicity were the main evaluation criteria associated with leak impacts. Oil presented the highest associated impact, followed by alcohol-based fuel and natural gas.
