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.
Kiewit Energy Canada fabricated and set 43 modules, built the central processing facility, constructed well pads, and laid pipelines for Phase 1 this 3,000 bpd facility. Phase 2 was a Kiewit-led EPC project, included adding 22,000 barrel-per-day capacity to Phase 1. By self-performing critical path elements, including the fabrication and setting of 118 modules, Kiewit was able to keep the project on time and on budget.
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.
