Atigun mainline reroute project

Atigun Mainline Reroute Project won the 1992 PMI International Project of the Year award.The Alyeska Mainline Pipe Replacement team replaced 8.5 miles of corroded pipe buried in sub-arctic terrain with a new pipe that would not corrode as easily.Alyeska faced numerous obstacles such as the climate, the Gulf War, and difficulty in procuring material.Moreover, they were instructed not to interrupt normal pipeline operations.Following the Exxon Valdez oil spill, the project was subjected to intense scrutiny by Alyeska management, regulators, and the public. Due to the project's isolated setting, Alyeska was required to construct facilities for supplies, offices, and living space for 500 personnel. Nevertheless, the project was completed on time and cost 34% less than the budget estimates.It was chosen as the winner due to the complexity of the project as well as the inventive project management procedures Alyeska used throughout the task.
