University museum gets replacement oil pipeline 'pig'

Associated PressJanuary 26, 2012 

FAIRBANKS -- The University of Alaska Museum of the North is the proud owner of a new pipeline pig.

The pig -- a device used to clean the inside of a pipeline and help with regular maintenance -- was donated by the Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. It was used to clean the trans-Alaska pipeline from 2007 to 2010.

The new pig is on display on the northwest corner of the museum building and replaces an older model that had degraded over time.
