Jacobs wins work on Alberta diesel refinery project
Jacobs Engineering Group received a contract from North West Redwater Partnership (NWR) for its Sturgeon refinery project in Albertas Industrial Heartland area, the company confirmed on Tuesday.
Officials did not disclose contract value, but noted that under the terms of the contract, Jacobs is providing engineering and procurement services for the utilities requirements of the refinery, a fundamental component of the first phase of the project.
Located approximately 30 miles northeast of Edmonton in Alberta, Canada; the Sturgeon refinery is being designed to enhance cost effectiveness and minimize environmental impact.
Although only Phase 1 is sanctioned at this time, after three equal phases, the facility is expected to operate at a capacity of 150,000 bpd; producing diesel, diluent, and other bitumen products for national and global markets.
We are delighted to have the opportunity to develop a relationship with North West Redwater Partnership as we leverage our extensive refinery capabilities and expertise to support them in working toward their goals for this significant project," said Jacobs vice president Greg Rumford.
NWR is a joint venture between North West Upgrading and Canadian Natural Resources. The companies broke ground on the first phase of the project last September.
