Fugro secures geotechnical and geophysical work from Alaska LNG

Fugro has been awarded a large geotechnical and geophysical (G&G) programme by ExxonMobil Alaska LNG LLC (AKLNG) – a consortium of ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips, British Petroleum, TransCanada and the State of Alaska.

According to Fugro, the geotechnical scope of work includes drilling and sampling of borings for the onshore liquefaction facilities, marine terminal and offshore pipelines. It also includes installation of monitoring wells, seismograph and in situ measurement of soil properties.

The company further says that the geological and earthquake engineering scope will include assessment of geohazards, source characterisation, probabilistic seismic hazard and site response analyses. In addition, bathymetric, side scan sonar, reflection and refraction surveys and sub-bottom profiling will also be conducted to assist in developing an integrated site model.

Fugro explains that these studies will assist AKLNG and its contractors to proceed with the FEED level design of the LNG terminal and associated offshore pipelines.

The Nikiski area on the Kenai Peninsula in East Cook Inlet was identified as the lead location for AKLNG’s LNG plant and marine terminal site.
