Oil and Gas Drilling

In the search for new oil and gas fields, on-shore drill sites have become less accessible and often subject to severe weather. The stabilisation of access roads, drill pads and working platforms for cranes, drilling rigs and other heavy equipment over soft and variable ground is a key issue – and Tensar’s geogrids can play a crucial role:
  • With less excavation needed and relatively simple installation, geogrids can reduce both construction time and cost by up to 50%
  • Locally available fill materials can be used to minimize cost and reduce programmed construction time
  • If access is by rail rather than road, Tensar geogrids can also increase the bearing capacity of railway track beds, particularly over soft ground
  • Tensar can provide fully indemnified designs in multiple languages with the support of our overseas offices and locally available staff.
  • TensarTech systems can be used to construct cost effective temporary and permanent structures on site, using locally available materials.

With less excavation needed and relatively simple installation, geogrids can reduce both construction time and cost by up to 50%
