Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project
The Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project is being built near Corpus Christi, Texas on over 1,000 acres. A 23-mile pipeline that is 48” in diameter is being built to transport natural gas to the facility, where it can be converted into LNG through the process of liquefaction. Atlanta Rod was chosen to manufacture special high strength 17-4 stainless anchor bolts for this project. In 2016, we manufactured over 15,000 lbs of M56 diameter bolts and forged nuts that were rushed to the jobsite to keep pace with construction. Stringent testing requirements meant that these bolts and nuts required multiple tensile tests, proof-load testing, and charpy impact testing to ensure that 100% of the fasteners conformed to the project specifications.
