Kuparuk moving from diesel to gasoline

Petroleum News

The state has approved plans by ConocoPhillips Alaska, the Kuparuk River unit operator, to install two new gasoline tank skids and other equipment at the field.

The division said the tanks will provide gasoline fuel for vehicles as ConocoPhillips “transitions away from diesel-powered pickup trucks in the Kuparuk Field.”

Facilities approved include two new gasoline tank skids, four tanker truck loading area containment skids and an attendant shack all at the Kuparuk operations center pad on the east side of Central Processing Facility No. 1.

ConocoPhillips Alaska has also received authorization for a sleeve repair on a section of infield pipeline at Drill Site 3B at Kuparuk, work which requires an ice road of some 325 feet to enable access for work which involves cutting out a corroded section of pipe and welding a new section in place, with construction scheduled to begin Jan. 1 or as soon as snow conditions allow and will be completed by April 15.
