Attending Companies: About

ALYESKA PIPELINE Alyeska Pipeline Service Company formed in 1970 to design, build, maintain and operate the Trans Alaska Pipeline System. The pipeline today is recognized as a landmark engineering feat and remains essential to Alaska’s economy and central to the state’s industry. Focused on safe and flawless operations and sustainability, Alyeska today is working to respond to the challenges posed by declining throughput. Throughput peaked at 2.1 million barrels a day in 1988. It has only steadily decreased since. In 2011, Alyeska on average moved about 600,000 barrels per day. With the lower flow levels, the crude oil takes longer to reach the Valdez Terminal – about 2 weeks, on average – and the oil is colder on arrival. The slower, colder oil has more potential for water and wax to settle and drop out, and as throughput declines further, the potential for ice to form during shutdown or flowing conditions increases. Alyeska released results of its low flow study in 2011 and is currently making and researching modifications to respond to lower throughputs. Alyeska is an Alaskan company. Its 800 employees are proud of the pipeline’s history – one enriched by teamwork, innovation and a commitment to safety, reliability, and the integrity of TAPS. The company values its strong ties to Alaskans and to its communities, with a comprehensive philanthropy program and its unique Alaska Native Program, dedicated to creating professional growth opportunities for Alaska Natives ___________________________________________________________________________________________ BAKER HUGHES: Baker Hughes Incorporated (NYSE: BHI) creates value from oil and gas reservoirs with high-performance drilling, evaluation, completions and production technology and services, integrated operations and reservoir consulting.

The company also owns and operates products terminals in Fairbanks and Anchorage that store and distribute asphalt, fuel oils, diesel, jet fuel and gasoline refined at the North Pole Refinery. The Anchorage Terminal receives products from the North Pole Refinery via Alaska Railroad tank cars, annually offloading about 22,000 rail cars. That product is then distributed locally and to locations along Alaska's coastline. The Anchorage terminal facility can store more than 700,000 barrels. A pipeline system extends from the facility one-half mile to the Port of Anchorage and enables bulk fuel transfers to and from other terminals and vessels berthed at the municipality's petroleum, oil and lubricants docks. The terminal loads an average of 60 to 80 vessels annually. The Fairbanks Terminal stores, in bulk, jet fuel that is delivered by tanker truck from the refinery to the four vertical storage tanks. Jet fuel is loaded from tanks into 10,000-gallon aircraft refueling trucks called fuel tenders, or "DARTS" and delivered to airline customers. The DARTS fuel 18 to 24 flights per day.
