With the increase in the pollution caused by oil industry developments and related infrastructures in the last century, setting priorities for decisions in sensitive coastal areas to oil spills is important. This study uses the reports in the field of environmental sensitivity index in shorelines and applies the Delphi method to determine the criteria and sub-criteria allowed for adjusting the effective  hazard components of the shoreline to pollution. Finally, using hierarchical analysis and network analysis methods helped in determining the priorities of the indexes in the evaluation of the shoreline hazards to oil spills. This study compares priorities by utilizing Expert Choice software for hierarchical analysis and Super Decisions software for network analysis process within the framework of multi-criteria decision-making methods. Based on this, biological resources, socio-economic resources of pollution, the physical characteristics of the shorelines, and the related sub-criteria were prioritized. Accordingly the final ANP/AHP maps are produced by using Index Overlay method
