Among the new offshore structures along the east coast of the United States is a terminal facility about one mile off Cove Point, Md., in Chesapeake Bay. This terminal will take deliver from the largest ships available for carrying liquefied natural gas (LNG). The LNG will travel to shore at -260°F in submarine pipelines contained within a subaqueous tunnel. Several types of piling support various parts of the terminal facilities. The tunnel sections rest on specially prepared underwater foundations of gravel bedding and riprap locking material. The onshore facilities are also considered.
