Suncor Energy Oil Sands Limited Partnership has selected Fluor Corp. to construct and develop a tank farm in the Athabasca oil sands region in Alberta, Canada.
Fluor will perform engineering, procurement and fabrication services for the project meant to provide storage and blending for hot bitumen prior to the substance’s transfer to the tank terminal, Fluor said Wednesday.
Fluor’s Calgary-based office began the work in March 2015 under the contract the company booked in the first quarter of 2015.
“By implementing an integrated services approach using our fabrication and module assembly resources, we will drive capital efficiencies and delivery predictability,” said Jim Brittain, president of Fluor’s energy and chemicals business in the Americas.
Fluor previously finished the engineering and design work for the tank farm.
The tank farm is scheduled for commercial operations in April 2017.
