Ports and LNG Terminals


Ports and LNG Terminals are a demanding field, requiring specialist skill sets in onshore, inter-tidal and offshore geoscience. The projects are often complex, involving conventional piled foundations but also land reclamation and dredging activities, corresponding to very significant CAPEX investment and sensitive structures. Cathie brings all of our specialisms to this sector to enhance ground risk understanding and optimise construction solutions. Our work on the Port of Montevideo was award winning.

We have demonstrated experience with very difficult geological conditions including calcarenite & carbonate sands (YemenLNG), thick layers of peat (Shtokman, Russian Arctic) and permafrost soils (Yamal LNG, extreme Russian arctic). Our services range from the earliest stages, with feasibility studies, management and supervision of surveys, FEED and detailed engineering phases, supervision of the foundation installation and testing.
