The Alaska Highway Gas Pipeline

The Alaska Highway Gas Pipeline project is a natural gas pipeline system for transporting natural gas from Alaska’s North Slope to the lower 48 states, through Yukon, British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. The pre-build, completed in 1982, currently transports gas from Western Canada to American markets in the West and the Midwest. The northern portion would connect the reserves at Prudhoe Bay, Alaska with existing Alberta infrastructure. About 1,555 km of this route would be located in northern Canada, passing through numerous communities in both Yukon and northern B.C.

A wealth of information on the Alaska Highway Gas Pipeline from both U.S. and Canadian sources is available at The Pipe Files – Alaska Gas Line, at The Pipe Files. The Pipe Files is a digital library created by the U.S. Office of the Federal Coordinator with input from the Northern Pipeline Agency.
