LNG Export Terminal Ground Improvement
Location: Gulf Coast
Ground Improvement Project Completed Ahead of Schedule
ENTACT performed soil improvement at this 1,000-acre site in preparation for the development of a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) export terminal. The project site is at an ideal location, situated on a ship channel that connects with the Gulf of Mexico. It features deep-water access, proximity to plentiful gas supplies, and ease of transport for buyers.
The scope of work included soil improvement of 411,000 cubic yards of soft saturated clay to depths ranging from 4.0 to 8.5 feet, within various areas of this site, to facilitate equipment site access. We performed soil improvement utilizing Type I-II Portland cement to achieve an unconfined compressive strength of 25 psi in 28 days.
ENTACT completed the work within 3 months.
