In this paper the problem of placement the shut-off valves along the length of the pipeline is considered as a multicriterion one, taking into account such factors as the possible volume of spill oil, category of pipeline, the maximum distance between shut-off valves and possible economic losses in the event of a pipeline failure, with appropriate arrangement. As an example, we considered a pipeline section with several options for placing stop valves and selected the best one according to the proposed method.

Materials and methods
Research materials: regulatory and technical documentation in the field of pipeline design, existing coordinates of the placement of shut-off valves on the pipeline section. Research methods: Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) method to
estimation of effectiveness structural elements placing on the oil trunk pipeline. Method of economic assessment of possible damage from pipeline breakage.
