Gas Monitoring at Proposed UAE Embassy Site
A vacant plot in Al Seef, Kingdom of Bahrain was the proposed development site of a new United Arab Emirates Embassy. Concerns of underground gas concentrations were raised prior to commencing construction. Therefore, gas monitoring was recommended to be undertaken before any construction, drilling, or excavation, to ensure the safety and suitability of the site for construction.
Our Client Al-Hoty Group installed 6 tapped gas boreholes around the site. The results of the gas monitoring showed that gases were present but not in significant concentrations and construction could be undertaken safely.
ByrneLooby were commissioned by Al-Hoty Group to undertake gas monitoring at the proposed site for the UAE Embassy. Weekly readings were undertaken for 6 boreholes using a Geotech GA5000 gas monitor for the following parameters:
• Methane (CH4)
• Carbon dioxide (CO2)
• Oxygen (02)
• Carbon monoxide (CO)
• Hydrogen sulphide (H2S)
