Recent development in economic and the search of new energy has brought to the usage of area with plenty of marine clay. This soil creates several complexities in geotechnical design due to high compression behaviour and low bearing capacity. 8 oedometer tests were performed in this project to study the compression curves under one-dimensional loading from shallow to deeper depth of soil sample taken. Result shows that the compression index increased from 0.564 – 0.611 as the percentage finer increased, thus the compressibility of soil is mainly controlled by the fines particles. The preconsolidation pressure for all samples ranged from 200 – 500 kPa which can be compared with the presence literature for the compression behaviour towards denser soil. In conclusion, the compression behaviour of intact soil is close related with the basic soil properties and structure effect of soil.
