Drilled Shafts

Citgo Petroleum Lake Charles – Limited Access Drilled Shafts

GROUP Deep Foundations was contracted by CITGO to install limited access drilled shafts for this project.  The project consisted of 261 each 2-3ft diameter drilled size shafts.  Several access bridges had to be built to accommodate the shaft locations and the drill rig and support equipment had to be flown into several of the locations for access.  GROUP’s owns two of these “highly” limited access rigs that are exactly alike and require a very small footprint.  The heads of these rigs can be detached and mounted to concrete paving creating a situation where “if you can stand there, we can drill there”.  On this project GROUP Deep Foundations poured over 1500 yards of concrete and had zero safety incidents.
