Leading the charge for asset protection and pipeline integrity for the past 45 years, Alaska Structures® supplies conveyor and pipeline enclosures to the mining and gas and oil industries on a global scale. From wind-swept plains to the coldest points of the Arctic Circle, our enclosures support major gas and oil pipeline projects as the demand for natural resource production becomes increasingly important.
The Importance of Pipeline Enclosures
Since natural resource exploration, extraction, processing prices and environmental concerns have seen a staggering increase, the civil, petroleum, and mining engineering industries need to take every step possible toward asset protection.
Security at in-line facilities is already well established; however, for many thousands of miles between, pipeline operators are left with little more than fiber-optic cables to sense problems as they arise. The U.S. Department of Transportation's Office of Pipeline Safety cites "damage by outside force" as the leading cause of pipeline issues through the nearly 300,000 miles of transmission pipes nationwide. Sabotage, terrorism and illegal tapping are all potential risks.
How Pipeline Enclosures From Alaska Structures Help
In order to reduce loss and protect assets, Alaska Structures works with some of the industry’s top leaders to provide best-in-class technology and engineering, design services, and products in addition to being voluntarily reviewed by a third-party engineering team. Our enclosures maintain a natural fit with the ability to shelter and seal overland conveyor systems, portable conveyors and bulk handling conveyors in any climate, and can easily be moved and reused at another site.
And since these rugged industries work in extreme environments, they need an enclosure that can perform at the highest level. Alaska Structures can customize an enclosure for your operation; we have hundreds of standard options starting at six feet wide and reaching any length to protect your enclosure from extreme conditions, including harsh elements, accidental damage, and unwanted intrusions.
In 1991, we completed a conveyor enclosure at Red Dog Mine, a zinc mine above the Arctic Circle. The enclosure exceeds one mile in length and is currently the longest fabric building on the planet.
In addition to pipeline enclosures, Alaska Structures manufactures a wide range of American-made fabric structures for oil and gas exploration and extraction, including:
- Drilling Enclosures
- Frac Sand Storage
- Pump Station Enclosures
- Dining Facilities
- Workforce Housing
- Health Clinics
- Airplane Hangars
