Nuiqsut Natural Gas

The North Slope Borough constructed Nuiqsut Natural Gas Pipeline (NNGP) to transport natural gas from the ConocoPhillips Alpine production pad to the village of Nuiqsut, a community of over 400 residents located within the Colville River Delta. The 14.4-mile NNGP shares horizontal and vertical supports with the Alpine pipelines from the production pad to the west bank of the Colville River, where it transitions below-ground and continues to the village. Approximately 2.4 miles of the NNGP are located on State of Alaska land. State lands include a section of the above-ground pipeline and the trenched crossing of the Nechelik Channel of the Colville River. Pipeline lease renewal review is in process.
