LNG EXPORT FACILITY SOIL IMPROVEMENT
Industry: LNG, Oil & Gas
Location: Gulf Coast
Ground Improvement Services Supports LNG Export Facility Expansion
In preparation for future construction at this liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility, ENTACT improved the soil in the expansion area to facilitate equipment access and support perimeter storm protection and levee system construction.
ENTACT’s scope included soil improvement of approximately 1.7 million cubic yards of soft saturated dredged clay, filled to depths ranging from 3.0 to 6.0 feet within various areas of this site. We utilized Type I-II Portland cement to achieve a shear strength of 1,800 psf for the site raise area and 2,500 psf underneath the future perimeter levee.
ENTACT completed the ground improvement work within 10 months.
