Pump Station #5

Pump Station No. 5 is unique from other pump stations because it is actually a pressure relief station. While other pump stations keep the oil moving, this station slows down the oil as it speeds through the pipeline after its decent from the Brooks Range. Oil is drained to relieve pressure and then re-injected. Pump Station No. 5 does not have mainline pumps and cannot boost the speed the oil is traveling through the pipeline.
