Pump Station #6

To the west is Pump Station No. 6. There were originally 10 pump stations along the Trans Alaska Pipeline, only 6 are used to move oil today. These pumps move the oil through the 800 mile-long pipeline from Prudhoe Bay to Valdez. Most stations have three gas-turbine-driven mainline pumps. Each pump can move 22,000 gallons of oil a minute, that's 754,000 barrels a day.
