From the POV of a fanfic writer, Project based scenes are invaluable as a way of breaking up the action.
Leave Sam in jeopardy while you switch back to what is going on at PQLHQ, which ups the tension and the angst. It is a standard trick in almost all literature and TV. Split your characters into different groups and swap the action between them.
Yes, the standard format is predominantly Sam's POV, but it is acceptable to intersect Al's POV, so long as the transitions are clear. IMHO anyway.
