Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. announced Tuesday that it has received a contract to provide detailed engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services for Suncor Energy’s Voyageur Upgrader near Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada. Officials did not disclose the contract value.
Jacobs will provide EPC services for the sulfur complex of the Suncor Voyageur Upgrader, which is a key component of Suncor’s plan to achieve a targeted production capacity of 550,000 barrels of oil per day by 2012. The Voyageur Upgrader will upgrade bitumen primarily from the Firebag in situ site.
The new sulfur complex includes two sour water stripper units, one amine unit, three sulfur recovery trains, sulfur degassing, an LT SCOT tail gas treating unit, and a sulfur truck loading terminal. Jacobs will also perform the pipe fabrication and module assembly work at their Edmonton, Alberta, facilities.
Jacobs has been a Suncor Supplier of Choice since 2001, performing engineering for the multi-billion dollar Firebag in-situ program and previously completing the EDS phase of the sulfur complex portion of the Voyageur Upgrader Project.
In making the announcement, Jacobs Group Vice President Chip Mitchell stated, “We are pleased to build on our extensive engineering and procurement work on the Firebag facilities and expand our services to bring added value to Suncor, delivering the total EPC package for their pace-setting Voyageur project.”
