Kuparuk Pipelines

kuparuk aerial

The original 16-inch Kuparuk Pipeline, laid in 1981, carried processed crude oil to PS 1. Later that same year, the Kuparuk Pipeline Extension was constructed from CPF-2 to CPF-1, and comprised both 12-inch and 18-inch segments. In 1984, when the new 24-inch Kuparuk Pipeline was laid, the original Kuparuk Pipeline was converted to the Oliktok Pipeline, which now carries natural gas liquids from PS 1 (Skid-50) back to CPF-1. The KPE was also placed in service at this time and connected to the 24-inch KPL. In 2009, as part of the smart pigging project, the 12-inch segment of the Kuparuk Pipeline Extension was replaced with 18-inch pipe, which will make that portion of the pipeline piggable. Physical characteristics of the pipeline, including diameter and product transported, are provided in SPCO Annual Report: Appendix F.
