Shell has selected KBR to perform off-site modularization
and pipe fabrication at their Edmonton module facility, the
companies confirmed on Friday.
This project will use Shell's Quest
carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies to reduce
CO2 emissions at Shells upgrader,
which upgrades oil originating from Shells Athabasca oil
This technology will reduce greenhouse
gas emissions by capturing more than 1
million tpy of CO2 produced during the upgrading process,
according to the companies.
KBR says it will support Shells effort to maximize
off-site modularization by providing pipe spool fabrication and
module assembly for pipe, process, equipment and building
The scope of work 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, said Ivor Harrington, president of KBR's services
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
