The inter-regional incidents associated with the oil spill is increasingly a serious problem to the industrial developing countries, like Vietnam. In this study, a multi-criteria analysis process was proposed to identify petroleum depots that represent potential inter-regional oil spill incidents in Ho Chi Minh City and the neighboring provinces. The criteria for determining the inter-regional inccidents asscociated with oil spill comprise of a number of criteria sets such as oil spill hazard criteria, inter-regional hazard criteria, oil spill damage criteria. Hierarchical analysis (AHP) has been applied for identifying the importance factor of the criteria. The total risk of inter-regional oil spill incidents are then estimated to provide effective support to the risk management and response plan.
