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 companys 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 Fluors 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 Fluors energy business.
Fluors 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 Fluors office in Calgary, Alberta, with support from its offices in the Philippines.
