R Tice (Book). The Trans-Alaska Pipeline System is one of the most defining features of Alaska’s physical and economic landscape. Constructed during the ’s, the Pipeline is a key plank of the American economy, allowing for the rapid transportation of oil from North Slope oil fields to Valdez, a port city on the state’s southern coast.

Information was obtained at the Alaska OHA and from BLM field offices in Glennallen and Anchorage to locate and document known historical and archaeological sites along the proposed pipeline alignment.

examine the proposed pipeline route for the presence of significant archaeological sites. The project number assigned by BVRA is The field survey was conducted on J The pipeline route originally consisted of feet (station number 0+00 to station number 63+88).

Later, an additional feet were added on the east side, and. The construction of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System included over miles (1, km) of oil pipeline, 12 pump stations, and a new tanker largely on permafrost during –77 between Prudhoe Bay and Valdez, Alaska, the $8 billion effort required tens of thousands of people, often working in extreme temperatures and conditions, the invention of specialized construction techniques.

The third is the inch trans Alaska pipeline, which was completed in June oftwenty-seven months after the first length of pipe was laid. This line was built by private contractors working for Alyeska Pipeline Service Company, the agent for the eight major oil companies who own the oil.

the trans-alaska oil pipeline survives the quake—a triumph of science and engineering One matter of great concern immediately following the magnitude Denali Fault earthquake in November was the fate of the Trans-Alaska Oil Pipeline, built in the 's.

The Trans-Alaska pipeline is only reasonable way to get the crude oil from the north slope of Alaska, (Prudhoe Bay), to Valdez (the northernmost ice-free port in North America). It transports 13% of the nation's domestic oil production. After three months, Shell backed down and withdrew the injunctions - and also dropped its original pipeline route.
