How TAPS is Managed

TAPS is an 800-mile pipeline system that transports crude oil from Alaska's North Slope to Port Valdez on Alaska's Prince William Sound. Alyeska Pipeline Service Company operates TAPS, with regulatory oversight through the Joint Pipeline Office.

The Trans-Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS) consists of the pipeline, pump stations, a marine terminal, and associated facilities and systems. TAPS transports crude oil from Alaska's North Slope to Port Valdez in Prince William Sound. TAPS is operated by Alyeska Pipeline Service Company on behalf of six owner companies. Federal and state governments cooperatively oversee the TAPS system and administer the federal and state rights-of-way terms and conditions through the Joint Pipeline Office (JPO).
