LNG Production Facility


Ames Construction developed a site for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant in Wyalusing, Pennsylvania, in a project that required earthwork, aggregate placement, and installation of HDPE storm drain.

Pennsylvania is wet and rainy, with glacial till soil that contains significant cobbles and rock of varying sizes all jumbled together, from tiny particles to large boulders. Crews used filter sock for sediment control and lime stabilization soil to strengthen material to provide a solid working platform for facility construction. Despite especially wet conditions, Ames crews maintained and controlled surface runoff with little erosion on steep embankments.
