Coastal terminals and industrial sites

Shipping increasing quantities of crude oil, gas, ore and chemicals between extraction and production sites and consumer countries entails constructing maritime infrastructure suited to each product category and site. In optimising the cost and operability of such facilities, Artelia is involved as early as the preliminary design stage to identify the best sites, and then draws on its expertise in overall layout design, shiphandling, mooring, defence works and port structures during the various phases of project design.In particular, Artelia has carried out studies for numerous LNG terminals around the world, including those at Shtokman in the Barents Sea (Russia), Dunkirk (France), Fujairah (United Arab Emirates) and Browse (Australia). Artelia also designed and sized the structures for the ore terminals at Falémé (Senegal), Mbalam (Cameroon) and Açu (Brazil), the energy ports of Nador West Med and Safi (Morocco) and the petroleum islands of Zakum (United Arab Emirates).
