Storm Surge Protection Wall for Gulk LNG Clean Energy Project
Jackson County, MS
In September of 2008, Gulf LNG submitted a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) filing which provided responses to FERC Environmental Data Requests. The FERC filing provided detailed data that support the final design of a new LNG facility’s Terminal Seawall and supplemented the general design information that was filed with FERC.
NCI conducted the independent coastal engineering technical review of the proposed surge protection wall design and supporting documents. The tasks NCI performed included; Investigation of the 100-year storm surge elevation and offshore storm wave conditions; review of the hurricane storm wave modeling studies; review and re-calculate the wave forces on the surge protection wall; review the wave-induced toe-erosion; calculate the wave runup and wave overtopping on the wall; recommendation of additional wave studies, and providing detailed written review comments on the surge protection wall design.
