Crowley to build and operate fuel storage in Alaska

Crowley Solutions, a leading provider of energy, maritime, technology and supply chain services for the US government, was awarded a multi-year contract from the Defence Logistics Agency Energy, to build and operate a 500,000-barrel, contractor owned and operated bulk fuel storage in Fairbanks, Alaska.

The initial contract is for four years, with an additional five-year option. Engineering, permitting and site surveys have begun, with ground-breaking expected in August and substantial completion expected by January 2022.

Crowley’s facility will provide 500,000 barrels of fuel storage with dedicated product pipelines, including a tie-in into the government-owned fuel pipeline currently servicing Eielson Air Force Base.

Additional infrastructure providing increased operational resiliency include, a tank truck loading facility (TTLF), rail car loading facility and on-site product additives.

This new government-dedicated facility will be the second of its kind for Crowley in Alaska. Crowley acquired a facility used as Defence Fuels Support Point Anchorage in 2011. Then in 2015, the company expanded that terminal over a 12-month period, adding nearly 500,000 barrels of new storage. The company also installed on site product additive storage and injection infrastructure, as well as a state-of-the-art TTLF between 2017 and 2018.

Today, Crowley provides more than one million barrels of dedicated product storage under a long-term contract with DLA Energy in support of Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. The original five-year contract began in 2015 and was recently extended through 2025 through DLA Energy’s exercising of a second, five-year option.
