Fluor bags tank farm contract in Canada’s Athabasca oil sands

TEXAS, US/ALBERTA, CANADA: Engineering and construction firm Fluor Corporation was awarded an engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction (EPFC) contract by Suncor Energy Oil Sands Ltd partnership for a tank farm development project in the Athabasca oil sands region in Alberta, Canada. Fluor booked the contract for an undisclosed value in the first quarter of 2015, it said.

The project will provide storage and blending for hot bitumen in preparation for pipeline transport to the Athabasca Tank Terminal. In addition to the tank farm, Fluor’s scope of work includes the connecting pipeline.

“By implementing an integrated services approach using our fabrication and module assembly resources, we will drive capital efficiencies and delivery predictability,” said Jim Brittain, president of Fluor’s energy & chemicals business in the Americas.

Fluor recently completed the front-end engineering and design work for the project. The EPFC phase of the project began in March 2015 and commercial operations are expected to begin in April 2017.
