Paper presented at the OTC Arctic Technology Conference, November 5–7, 2018
Paper Number: OTC-29146-MS
... Abstract Pipelines and roads represent the arteries of the oil and gas, and mining and transportation industries, respectively. They move product from remote locations to more centralized locations, either for processing or for shipping to refineries and mills for subsequent processing. Proper...

... the way for the construction of the Trans-Alaskan Pipeline System (TAPS). More wells were drilled, and large fields were developed. To date, however, development of discoveries on Alaska's North Slope have been limited to a relatively small area comprising Prudhoe Bay, the Kuparuk Area, small outliers...

... Abstract The Drake pipeline is located offshore Melville Island, in the Canadian High Arctic. It was built on-site in 1977-78 and connected to a natural gas production well, which operated for only a few months. The well was plugged in 1995 and the pipeline was abandoned. The pipeline extends...

Paper Number: OTC-27374-MS
... Abstract As the demand for energy resources grew, the oil and gas industry looked north for exploration and development of offshore hydrocarbon resources. Significant discoveries were made in Arctic and sub-Arctic regions; however, these environments can be particularly unforgiving on pipelines...

Paper presented at the Arctic Technology Conference, October 24–26, 2016
Paper Number: OTC-27391-MS
... Abstract As arctic regions become more accessible for oil and gas exploration and development, the need for subsea export pipelines and flowlines will continue to grow. To reduce risks to the pipeline from hazards of natural or geologic origin, it is critical to consider a more sophisticated...

Paper presented at the Arctic Technology Conference, October 24–26, 2016
Paper Number: OTC-27419-MS
... Abstract Offshore oil and gas production in arctic areas is challenging due to harsh environmental conditions. Pipeline burial and trenching in those areas are now one of the prime methods to avoid ice gouge risks and other threats. Thermal management becomes critical when the ambient...

... constructed on permafrost. In the arctic oil patch, thermosyphons have been used since the 1970’s with the largest single application being on the vertical support members for the Trans Alaska Pipeline that traverses Alaska. Early thermosyphon devices were installed vertically, and then in 1978, thermosyphons...
