Syncrude awards two oilsands contracts

Syncrude has awarded two contracts to KBR for module fabrication and field construction of a plant for processing tailings from its oilsands mines northeast of Fort McMurray, Alta.

The general contractor, KBR Industrial Canada, a subsidiary of KBR Canada, will provide module fabrication and construction services for the project, which uses Syncrude’s newest tailings reduction technology.

Module fabrication is scheduled to begin late this year and run through the end of 2013.

Construction will follow with mechanical completion scheduled to allow plant start-up in 2015.

The process is designed to pump fluid fine tailings through a series of centrifuges to separate the maximum amount of water from the solids.

Released water will be recycled for plant operations and the soil product of the centrifuge process will have sufficient density and strength to be placed in deposits, then capped and reclaimed. Tailing ponds hold the mixture of water, solids, and other fluids left over from the initial processing of mined oilsands.
