KBR bags Shell’s modularization and pipe fabrication contract in Canada

HOUSTON, US: Shell Canada Energy has selected KBR to perform off-site modularization and pipe fabrication at their Edmonton Module Facility in Canada. This historic project will use Shell Quest Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technologies to reduce CO2 emissions at Shell’s Upgrader which upgrades oil originating from Shell’s Athabasca Oil Sands operations. This technology will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by capturing more than one million metric tonne of CO2 per year produced during the upgrading process.

KBR will support Shell’s effort to maximize off-site modularization for this project by providing pipe spool fabrication and module assembly for pipe, process, equipment and building modules. The scope also includes the fabrication of several unique and innovative vertical modules and support for off-site testing and commissioning services.

“KBR is excited to participate in this critical and important environmental project for the Alberta Oil Sands. The Quest CCS project leadership team has expressed a deep commitment to engage and collaborate across all levels of both KBR and Shell in order to achieve world class safety, quality, cost and environmental performance. This project brings together world leaders in their respective fields, with a commitment to set new benchmarks for project performance in Canada,” said Ivor Harrington, Group President, Services, KBR.
