Trench bottom is leveled prior to gas pipe installation in the North Star Subdivision in North Pole. 70 miles of HDPE pipe is scheduled to be installed 3-4 feet underground this summer. 
Phase 1 Construction has begun!
     The latest word from the crews is that they really appreciate the nice weather we’ve been having, and can you believe there is still some frozen ground?! This has not stopped anyone from beginning installation of the first 70 miles of pipe this summer by mobilizing equipment into the areas, surveying, and locating utilities throughout Phase 1. So far, about 800 feet of pipe has been installed in this area.    

     IGU expects at least 16 crews working south of Hurst Road from May to September. Times to expect this work is 7am to 7pm Monday through Saturday, though preparation work may begin earlier. Remember to watch for flaggers and signage and drive slow or avoid these areas. Construction maps will be updated each week on planned installation areas under the "Maps" tab on the IGU Website.

Hats off to you!

The IGU Board of Directors invite you to “raise a hat” as we commemorate the work of Interior Alaskans with a groundbreaking celebration for the start of construction of Phase 1 in the IGU natural gas distribution system.

This milestone celebration will feature comments from Governor Walker, Senator Coghill, and City of North Pole Mayor Bryce Ward followed by a light lunch.

Wear a hat to salute this work and hats off to you!
 We continue to work on all aspects of delivering natural gas to as many people possible, as soon as possible. This includes consistent work on the design and implementation of Phase 1 and conversions. As we move through the first construction season, we want to hear from you!

IEP Progress

Members of the North Pole City Council, Fairbanks City Council and FNSB Assembly listen as Bob Shefchik, IEP Team Lead, reviews progress on the Interior Energy Project. 
     On May 12, Mayors Luke Hopkins, Bryce Ward and John Eberhart held a Joint Town Hall Meeting with a presentation from AIDEA concerning the future of the Interior Energy Project (IEP). The meeting highlighted successful milestones such as the passage of HB 105, authorizing the team to explore a potential gas supply source from within the state. The IEP team continues due diligence on the Pentex acquisition, transportation, and storage/regas components of the project, as well as distribution system build-out this summer with both IGU and FNG.

     IGU continues to support these efforts as we install 70 miles of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) pipe in the first phase of the distribution system this summer, and look forward to the further development of the overall project. You can stay up to date on the IEP project at
