Kiewit partners with domestic and international oil and gas firms to develop the world's energy sources, offering its clients a fully integrated delivery model for engineer-procure-construct (EPC) and startup services for their energy needs. Kiewit’s experience and capabilities in today’s complex energy market allows it to focus on four main market sectors: offshore, oil sands, midstream and downstream. Over the past 10 years, Kiewit completed more than 1,200 projects for the OGC industry, totaling nearly $22 billion in contract revenue.
Imperial Oil's Kearl Oil Sands project is located 70 kilometers north of Fort McMurray, Alberta, in the Athabasca oil sands region. Kiewit provided all the labor, construction equipment and bulk materials to build the Froth Treatment Facility and Flare Silo for this major oil sands project.
Kiewit Energy Canada provided FEED services including constructability reviews and the development of project execution plans the 120,000 bpd SAGD plant. Kiewit co-located with the designer to develop detailed project execution plans including a labor plan and camp accommodations. Ganotec West, a Kiewit affiliate, performed pipe spooling, fabrication and assembly of 10 piperack modules and 2 electrical modules that were sent to site.
Ganotec West, an affiliate of Kiewit, installed the air separation unit (ASU) at the Long Lake Oil Sands Upgrader. Disciplines included civil, structural, piping (fabricate and install), mechanical (including equipment, module setting and vessel internals), electrical & instrumentation, and insulation.
In 2008, TIC, a subsidiary of Kiewit, completed installation of a refurbished coker unit that was dismantled by TIC at a California refinery and relocated by Sinclair to Wyoming. TIC installed a total of eight major systems for this particular project: coker unit, two sulfur recovery units, two amine recovery units, sour water stripper, coke handling system, and 180 ft. flare system. TIC also built the entire project footprint—foundations, paving, structural steel, coker derrick structure, and several decks.
TIC, a Kiewit subsidiary, was awarded the lump sum contract to construct an expansion to the existing natural gas compressor facility near Douglas, Wyoming. The scope of work consisted of all associated structural, mechanical, electrical, and instrumentation work.
