Landslide Mitigation

In the mountainous regions of West Virginia, the development of natural gas infrastructure requires construction of well pads in steep slopes with significant cuts and fills. Landslides are common at newly-built well pads without strict construction oversight and customized design.

RETTEW investigated two existing landslides and provided recommendations and design for well pad repair. We also investigated multiple sites to determine landslide mitigation measures for implementation during construction. Our local staff and previous services for the client resulted in robust, extensive investigations and best practices recommendations. RETTEW’s on-site expertise and technical skill provided future well pad stability to ensure ongoing operations as well as cost-effective solutions for the existing landslides.
