Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) is seeking geotechnical engineers and/or engineering geologists to observe, document, and develop/implement mitigation strategies and review previously planned mitigation strategies for slope instability at all MVP facilities, including:
· compressor station pads
· interconnect pads
· pipeline right-of-way
· access roads
As discussed above, MVP is seeking geotechnical engineers and engineering geologists to provide full-time geotechnical and geological oversight of the project. These will work as a team under the direction of MVP Design Engineering.
This position is responsible for conducting geotechnical engineering on local geotechnical projects. Works under the direct supervision of an experienced professional to perform assignments that include independent evaluations using standard techniques, procedures and criteria. Must be able to use judgment in making minor adoptions and modifications to these standards. May coordinate work of other technical support personnel. The job schedule may include some nights and weekends as needed.
Construction and project completion is anticipated during the third quarter of 2020. From geotechnical services start date through start of construction, geotechnical personnel will walk the pipeline route with construction personnel to identify and document existing slope instability and landslide-prone areas that were not identified in the design-phase desktop review. These areas include but are not limited to side hill construction alignment and steep slope construction areas. Following the field review and prior to construction, the geotechnical personnel will proactively work with MVP engineering and construction staff to design landslide mitigation measures for each area identified area in the field. This schedule is subject to change based on the project schedule. There may be a break between pre-construction and construction-phase work when engineering and geological services will not be required.
During construction, a geotechnical engineer or engineering geologist will be assigned to a specific pipeline construction spread (geographic area) along the route. Construction spreads range in length from 22 to 39 miles. Engineers/geologists will observe construction operations with respect to subsurface conditions, document and evaluate the implementation of all landslide mitigation measures identified prior to construction, recommend additional measures with respect to long-term slope stability, and report daily activities to MVP construction and engineering as deemed necessary and appropriate by MVP.
