Unique workshop helps you handle complex soil sequences

Managing the Complexities and Uncertainties of Soil Sequences CourseAsk anyone about what lies beneath their feet and they’ll say it’s a mystery.  Understanding how ancient sediments were deposited are challenging enough, but taking the mystery out of the subsurface for environmental and engineering work can be daunting….even for professionals.

On Sept 12 & 13, geologists, engineers and environmental scientists will be traveling to Exton, PA for an interactive, educational workshop to learn how take the mystery out of the surface.

Bentley Systems and Midwest GeoSciences Group are combing technology and best practices to help professionals apply the geologic principles to ground water and engineering projects during this first-of-its kind workshop.

TerraThane geotechnical polyurethane saves slab at hydraulic fracturing station
Press Releases

Kansas City Company Uses US Product, TerraThane, to Keep Natural Gas Flowing in Nation’s Ninth Largest Gas Reserve

TerraThane geotechnical polyurethane saves slab at hydraulic fracturing stationFORT LUPTON, CO—An unfortunate inlet line break at one of Anadarko Petroleum’s hydraulic fracturing stations in Weld County, Colorado just north of Denver, allowed injection fluid to wash out the end of the pumping station and get beneath the concrete slab foundation causing erosion. The voids created beneath the slabs were from three inches to five inches and left the slab floor uneven. The general contractor for the station, Open Range Services, initially thought to use the legacy method of mudjacking, or pressure grouting: pouring a thick grout of mixed concrete and other aggregates into the void, or backfill, but the “mud” is heavy which can affect the surrounding soil, time consuming, and difficult to apply and clean, and backfilling would have required the costly process of ripping out the slab and replacing it. Instead, they contacted Pro Foundation Technology, based in Kansas City, MO, to learn more about a contemporary technology called “foamjacking” or “polyjacking,” which uses lighter weightgeotechnical polyurethane foam instead of grout.

Streamlining Landfill Environmental Monitoring

Eurofins Case Study: ESdat Online and ESdat Lab Portal

ESdat OnlineThe Eurofins Field Services Groundwater team conducts compliance monitoring on behalf of various Victorian Landfill operators.

New analytical results from the Eurofins lab and secondary labs were combined into spreadsheets containing ongoing and historical data on behalf of the landfill operators. This was a time consuming, labour intensive process. Uncontrolled, ‘hand-me-down’ spreadsheets can also introduce or hide critical errors.

Eurofins has adopted ESdat Online and the ESdat Lab Portal to replace the historic spreadsheets in order to increase efficiency and accuracy, and provide the landfill operators with direct access to their consolidated historical results through a web interface.
