Fugro has been awarded a geotechnical and geophysical (G&G) programme by ExxonMobil Alaska LNG (AKLNG), for the Alaska LNG Project.
This programme follows the successful completion of a similar, smaller programme carried out in 2014.
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 measurement of soil properties.
The geological and earthquake engineering scope will include assessment of geohazards, source characterisation, probabilistic seismic hazard and site response analyses. Bathymetric, side scan sonar, reflection and refraction surveys and sub-bottom profiling will also be conducted to assist in developing an integrated site model. These studies will assist AKLNG and its contractors to proceed with the front-end engineering and design (FEED) of the LNG terminal and associated offshore pipelines.
AKLNG is a consortium comprising ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips, BP TransCanada and the State of Alaska.
