Fluor to Collect $1.5B in 2009 from Kearl Oil Sands Gig
Fluor was awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for infrastructure and offlease facilities for the first phase of Imperial Oil's Kearl oil sands project, a surface mining and bitumen extraction operation located 70 kilometers northeast of Fort McMurray, Alberta. For this project, Fluor will book approximately $1.5 billion in 2009, with the majority of the award recognized in the second quarter of 2009.
"This significant project award expands our presence in the upstream side of the Canadian oil sands business, a key growth market for our company," said David Seaton, Fluor's senior group president for Energy & Chemicals, Power and Government. "Imperial Oil is a long-time client and we are thrilled to continue our relationship by helping them achieve their Canadian heavy oil growth strategy."
The Kearl project is envisioned to be developed in three phases and could ultimately produce more than 300,000 barrels per day of bitumen. The first phase of the project is expected to begin production in late 2012.
