California Refinery – New Berth & Seismic Upgrade

Langan is the geotechnical engineer of record for the replacement and seismic strengthening of a terminal at a refinery in California. The oil terminal is approximately 1,300 feet offshore consisting of a 950-foot-long concrete and timber pier, and an approximately 3,500 foot long access trestle and pipelines. In addition, a reinforced earthen embankment (approximately 4,000-foot-long and 45 to 160- foot wide) is being constructed over marshland. Our engineering studies have been performed in accordance with California Building Code, Marine Oil Terminal Engineering and Maintenance Standards.
