WorleyParsonsCord has been awarded a $130-million contract to provide module assembly and field construction services for the Cutbank Ridge Partnership’s 15-27 Saturn Phase 2 sweet gas plant project.
The plant is located approximately 25 kilometres northwest of Dawson Creek.
The contract will be led and executed by the WorleyParsonsCord Edmonton operations, which has been delivering modularization and construction services to western Canadian hydrocarbons, power and chemical sectors for several decades. WorleyParsonsCord will be working with communities and local businesses located in Northeast B.C. during the field construction phase of the project.
The Cutbank Ridge Partnership is a partnership between Encana Corporation and Cutbank Dawson Gas Resources Ltd., a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation. It is managing the construction of the project on behalf of Veresen Midstream Limited Partnership, which is providing midstream services to the partnership.
Veresen Midstream approved the $930-million expansion to its existing Saturn natural gas plant near Groundbirch with the release of its fourth quarter 2015 results March 9.
The expansion will add 200 million cubic feet per day of compression and 400 million cubic feet per day of gas processing.
Veresen Midstream says it plans to deliver the gas to both domestic and potential international markets via planned export facilities on the coast and the existing TransCanada NOVA Gas Transmission System.
Veresen Midstream has already released its plans to build two processing facilities in the same area: the Sunrise facility, announced in October, and the Tower gas plant, announced last December.
Fluor awarded engineering, construction management contract
In other contract news, the Cutbank Ridge Partnership has also selected Fluor Corporation to execute engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) for the Saturn project.
Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the fourth quarter of 2015.
The project is part of the Cutbank Ridge Partnership program to develop natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGL) production, with three similar projects, Sunrise 04-26, Tower 03-07 and Saturn 15-27 Phase 2. Fluor is currently executing the EPCM for all three projects.
“Fluor has been supporting these projects since the initial conceptual stages, and we look forward to taking them through the EPCM phase and delivering the completed facilities,” said Jim Brittain, president of Fluor’s energy and chemicals business in the Americas. “We will leverage the best practices and synergies gained from each of the projects to deliver a capital-efficient solution to the Cutbank Ridge Partnership.”
The new facilities will receive sweet natural gas, remove water and hydrocarbons, chill and compress the gas to meet transmission pipeline requirements and recover NGL from the gas streams.
