KITIMAT, B.C. – JGC Fluor (JFJV) is advancing the engineering and construction of the LNG Canada Project, which includes conducting test piling activities at the project site this spring/summer.

Piles (steel poles) will be used throughout the construction of the project and serve as deep foundations to ensure the stability of temporary and permanent infrastructure. Test piles will confirm JFJV’s engineering assumptions for the performance of the piles in geotechnical conditions at site and inform how future piles will be installed. Work will consist of 10 to 12 test piles being installed into the ground by machine.

Test piling is expected to begin the week of May 27 and be complete within 8 to 10 weeks. Work will occur between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.—seven days per week. Noise can be anticipated in areas surrounding the project.

Once test piling is complete, the next phase of the piling program for the project will begin in January 2020 and continue through to mid—2021.
