Fields Point Liquefaction Plant, 642 Allens Ave
Providence, Rhode Island
Description: This $180-million natural gas processing plant owned by National Grid is built on the Fields Point waterfront. In 2015, National Grid came forward with the proposal to build a plant that would supercool natural gas diverted from a nearby pipeline to turn it into a liquid for easier storage in an LNG tank that has been in use off Allens Avenue since the 1970s. The 127-foot-high tank is part of a backup system to channel natural gas to National Grid’s heating customers on the coldest winter days, when demand for the fuel is highest.
Scope of Work: For this project, Fenagh provided sieve analysis of soil, quality assurance, concrete compression testing, steel inspections, direct shear testing, reinforcing concrete inspections, and earthwork. Learn more about Fenagh’s services here.
