GeoContainment™ Solutions for Salt Caverns
BGES is a leader in subsurface GeoContainment™ services with expertise in logging, field testing, laboratory testing, and simulation.
The concept of GeoContianment™ is important to the design, construction and operation of underground salt caverns, which are commonly used hydrocarbon storage or disposal of toxic materials.
