Nov 20, 2019: Morris-Shea Installs DeWaal Piles for LNG Containment Facility in Cameron, LA

Morris-Shea, a leading deep foundation contractor, constructed deep foundations for 2 liquefied natural gas LNG containment tanks at Venture Global’s Calcasieu Pass LNG facility in Cameron, Louisiana. The specialty foundations contractor installed 2,700 18 inch DeWaal Drilled Displacement Piles to depths up to 113 feet as deep foundation for the 200,000 cubic meter LNG containment tanks. Twelve cone penetration tests (CPT) were performed for each LNG tank to better determine soil conditions. Leica survey grade GPS units on the Morris-Shea drill rigs assured accurate pile layout and rig positioning. LNG tank deep foundation installation was completed on schedule by Morris-Shea in November 2019.
