ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam -- Supporting organizations broke ground on Guam's newest pipeline at Andersen Air Force Base June 6 to formally mark the beginning of a project almost 10 years in the making.

Representatives from Defense Logistics Agency Energy, Naval Facilities Engineering Command Marianas, DLA Installation Support, Andersen Air Force Base's 36th Wing, and the project's construction contractor saw to the start of the $62 million 1303 Guam Pipeline military construction project.

Project proposals, project approvals and other administrative hurdles took close to a decade worth of effort to come to this point, but the 1303 Guam Pipeline project has become a reality, said Navy Cmdr. Tony Giles, commander of DLA Energy Pacific at Guam.

The groundbreaking ceremony was the formal kickoff to the construction phase of the 15.7-mile pipeline that will cross the island, Giles said.
"After nearly a decade, this very important project has become a reality and will add significant capability to the island of Guam," said Navy Capt. Chris Bower, DLA Energy Pacific commander.

"I appreciate all the hard work and effort from DLA, NAVFAC Marianas, and the contractors in support of our mission here at Anderson AFB," added U.S. Air Force Brig. Gen. Steven Garland, 36th Wing commander.

The project's estimated completion date is June 2016.
