IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation was awarded a contract by North West Redwater Partnership to provide front-end engineering and design (FEED) services for a new refinery project in Alberta, Canada. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the third quarter of 2011.

Under the contract, Fluor will be responsible for two sections of the refinery that will upgrade bitumen, separating components and removing impurities, and will also re-evaluate the FEED deliverables based on a revised crude slate.

“The Redwater bitumen refinery will feature controls to minimize its environmental footprint while providing much needed additional energy resources for North America,” said Peter Oosterveer, President, Energy & Chemicals Group, Fluor.

The North West Redwater Partnership is a joint venture between North West Upgrading Inc and Canadian Natural Resources Limited. The Redwater refinery will incorporate gasification and carbon capture and storage to reduce its environmental impact. The engineering project will be executed by Fluor’s offices in Calgary, Houston and New Delhi.
