.... The results indicate that contamination by oil derivatives reduces the strength and increases the settlement and displacement of the contaminated substrate, where the effects of diesel fuel are more significant than those of kerosene. The results of this research are compared with those of previous studies...

... have been subsiding for several decades and many dwellings have had to be abandoned. From topographical survey and visual observation, average rates of settlement vary between c. 0.1 and 0.4 m a −1 . The apparent depth and areal extent of ground movement are such that attempts to stabilize the area...

... cost). The methodology started with purging any remaining LNG with nitrogen, delivered in 30 liquid bulk road tankers to the site (totalling 682 000 l). The tanks were then to be filled with fine sand with a 3 m surcharge to allow for settlement of the ground on thawing and to prevent lateral movement...
