LNG Loading Facility- Marine Geotechnical & Geophysical Investigations

Main Banner

Geotechnical information was required for the engineering design for proposed Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) loading facilities.
CARES Group personnel provided project management and site supervision services. The planned facilities included a trestle jetty and LNG loading dock; marine access channel; turning basin; construction dock; and, breakwater.
To provide the required information a geotechnical investigation was conducted which covered the complete geotechnical scope including field data gathering (soil borings for sample collection / Cone Penetration Tests (CPT)); laboratory testing; data evaluation and preparation of the data reports.
The geophysical site investigation included data acquisition utilising an Echosounder. Side Scan Sonar, Sub-Bottom Pinger Profiler, Magnetometer and for the nearshore Seismic Refraction.
