DESIGN OF AN LNG TERMINAL IN CANADA'S HIGH ARCTIC

The Arctic Pilot Project involves natural gas from the Sabine Peninsula on northern Melvile Island, which will be pipelined to a liquefaction plant and port facility on the south coast of the island where it will be liquefied. From there, the liquefied natural gas (LNG) will be transported to Southern Canada in ice-breaking LNG ships capable of operating on a year round basis. The LNG plant and associated storage facilities will be constructed on barges and towed to the site. The terminal area is composed of deltaic sands and silts. The soil is in a permafrost condition up to a depth of six feet below mean sea level. This paper deals with the various foundation and logistics problems faced in the evaluation of alternatives prior to final design.
