FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR POST-TRENCHING OF OCTOPUS LNG PLANT GAS PIPELINE (CHILE)
- Start Date / End Date: 2013
- Place: CHILE
- Scope: Feasibility study
A study to analyse the feasibility of installing a gas pipeline using post-trenching techniques.
The pipe is 20” (508 mm) carbon steel with a thickness of 10.3 mm
Specifically, the following tasks were completed:ØAn analysis of the existing geotechnical aspectsØAn analysis of existing tsunami studies, analysing their impact on the designØThe calculation of the concrete cover to ensure the stability of the ensemble in the event of liquefactionØA description of the sinking systemØA description of the most appropriate post-trenching system.ØA study of subcontractor companies to analyse the feasibility of the system and the possibility of execution in the area.
