Alpine annual turnaround set for mid-June

Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. performed an 18-hour major maintenance shutdown of the trans-Alaska oil pipeline beginning 6 a.m. May 6, the first shutdown of the year.

Various projects were scheduled, including isolation of below-ground piping at the Valdez Marine Terminal; functionality confirmation for newly installed control systems; and routine maintenance.

Producers frequently take advantage of the shutdowns for their own maintenance projects.

ConocoPhillips Alaska spokeswoman Natalie Lowman said neither Alpine nor Kuparuk, both operated by ConocoPhillips, had scheduled maintenance during the May trans-Alaska oil pipeline shutdown. She said ConocoPhillips has “no significant turnarounds planned at Kuparuk this season.”

The annual turnaround for Alpine is schedule for mid-June.

As reported last week, BP has a scheduled turnaround later this summer, while Hilcorp took advantage of the May shutdown for some planned maintenance.
