Government of Nunavut (GN) Department of Community and Government Services (CGS) through the Petroleum Product Division (PPD) provide bulk fuel storage and distribution of Gasoline and Diesel (ULSDL) petroleum products for the community of Arviat, NU. PPD has identified that the current bulk fuel storage facility at Arviat is in need of expansion and code upgrades.The optimal option of the bulk fuel storage expansion in Arviat is to propose a new tank farm east of Arviat (location shown on map). This option will satisfy ULSDL (diesel) and gasoline demand in 20 years for fuel capacity projection. Four vertical tanks would be constructed; three ULSLD (20.8m Dia, 3333 m3 capacity) and one new gasoline (20.85 Dia, 3333 m3 capacity).The development of a new tank farm would require decommissioning the existing 920 m long resupply pipeline and Arviat Tank Farm Facility once the new resupply and tank farm facility is operational. A new dispenser and operator shelter building will be required with sloped roof design in accordance with NBC and PPD standards. Expected Operations Phase is 25 years.
