Conceptual Pipeline System Components


Pipeline system is comprised of four main facilities:


Buried pipeline (~48”, ~2500psi, high strength steel)


Intermediate compression facilities

Century Technology

Attributes


Advanced materials & design


High Pressure operation


Buried line with thermal control


Fewer, more powerful compressor stations


Advanced construction (trenching, welding, river crossings)


Advanced communication & control systems


Advanced monitoring and maintenance systems

Benefits


Lower fuel consumption


Reduced emissions


Smaller footprint


Reduced environmental impact


Expansion capacity


Lower cost of supply


High reliability


Conceptual Pipeline Construction Plan


Multiple construction spreads working over 3 year period.


Onshore


Principally winter construction


especially in permafrost.


Pipeline buried except for few specific crossings.


Grade
-
only construction where soils allow.


Primarily snow pads where soil/vegetation require protection.


Gravel construction pads required where protection is required
and slopes are excessive for snow pads.


Offshore


Summer construction from lay vessels.


Primarily offshore supply from existing infrastructure.

Wrap
-
up


We are fully engaged in a joint program to
evaluate and progress a large, modern
pipeline from Alaska to Canada and the
lower 48 states


There is a growing market for Alaskan gas,
but we must be cost
-
competitive to be a
viable project


It is premature to preclude any options at
this point

Contract Awards
