Bitumen Extraction and Storage Facility




Imperial Oil Resources has selected CB&I to provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) work at its Kearl oil sands project in Alberta, Canada.

The contract is worth over $900 million (£559.95 million) and will see the company involved with both the construction of the bitumen extraction plant and related storage facilities.

CB&I will design, supply and build additional storage vessels for the site, in addition to carrying out the EPC execution of the bitumen extraction plant and tank farms.

Philip Asherman, president and chief executive officer of the organisation, commented: "We are pleased to have supported Imperial Oil on this important energy project since its inception and we look forward to expanding our relationship with them in the future."

Earlier this month, the firm was awarded a contract by the Oman Refineries and Petrochemical Company for the front-end engineering and design work on a project to expand the Sohar refinery, increasing its capacity from 116,000 barrels per stream day to 187,000 barrels per stream day.

Organisations providing services in the oil and gas sector could benefit from EVision Oilfield Services Financial & Commercial Management software which helps to streamline their core business functions.
