Alpine Diesel Pipeline (orange)

The Alpine Diesel pipeline is one of three pipelines, each approximately 34 miles long, that connect the Colville River Unit (CRU) to infrastructure in the Kuparuk River Unit (KRU). The Alpine Diesel Pipeline transports heating fuel and other petroleum products from the KRU Central Processing Facility (CPF)-2 to the CRU Alpine Central Facility. The Right-of-Way Lease became effective December 15, 1998, and was originally between the State of Alaska and Atlantic Richfield Company for transportation of diesel fuel. Later, the State Pipeline Coordinator's Section (SPCS) approved the pipeline for transportation of all products. The lease is held by ConocoPhillips Company and expires on December 14, 2048.
