1. Construction Profile
Project name: LNG subsidiary project Pipeline directional drilling crossing Phase II
Proprietor / Development unit：CNOOC Eastern Guangdong Liquefied Natural Gas Co.,Ltd
Construction unit: Henan Jinchang Petrochemical Construction Co., Ltd
Project characters: Rongjiang River Ф914mm*1400m natural gas pipeline(steel pipe) crossing project,once again complete the achievement of crossing rivers by large series horizontal directional drilling (HDD) machine.
Geological condition: Entry point and exit point are both clay, most of the crossing stratums consist of silt and sand.
Project difficulities:The geological condition below the river is complicated, too much slit and quicksand ,hard to ream.
