Suncor awards engineering package to Fluor for Alberta oil sands project

10.29.2012  | 

Fluor’s design will include the use of its patent-pending 3rd Generation Modular Execution approach. The modules will be fabricated offsite and delivered to the jobsite to increase project safety, quality and improve schedule delivery. The design will be completed by Fluor’s office in Calgary, Alberta.

Fluor Corp. on Monday was awarded a contract by Canada-based Suncor Energy to provide front-end project management and engineering services on the energy company’s MacKay River Phase 2 oil sands project near Fort McMurray, Alberta.

Fluor booked the contract into backlog in the third quarter of 2012 for an undisclosed value.

“This project is an excellent opportunity for Fluor to continue providing our engineering and design expertise on high profile oil sands projects,” said Peter Oosterveer, president of Fluor’s energy and chemicals group.

“This region in northern Alberta serves as a significant oil resource for North America and it continues to play a key role in Fluor’s energy business.”

Fluor’s design will include the use of its patent-pending 3rd Generation Modular Execution approach to perform the project. The modules will be fabricated offsite and delivered to the jobsite to increase project safety, quality and improve schedule delivery, according to the company.

The design will be completed by Fluor’s office in Calgary, Alberta, with support from its offices in the Philippines.

I've known Fluor as one of the most reputable front-runners in using cutting-edge technologies in design and engineering of oil and gas process plants. I love the way Fluor professionally wins contract opportunities by incorporating new-challenging technologies in its proposals let alone its saving approach in project duration and costs. Good luck Fluor in utilizing your 3rd Generation of Modular Execution approach. I wish I was part of the PMT for this job!
