Planning for Success: 2019 Oil Sands Facility Turnaround
Strong communication from planning through execution resulted in seamlessly executed Nitrogen Services for the 2019 Spring Pit Stop that was completed 27% under-budget, with ZERO safety Incidents and ZERO A&D infractions.
Pre-Commissioning and Commissioning a Northern Alberta SAGD Facility
We were awarded the full pre-commissioning and commissioning work scopes at a Northern Alberta Oil Sands SAGD facility. During our time onsite, we became an integral part of the C&SU team working to ensure a successful, on time start up.
A Saskatchewan power producer required oil flushing on the lube oil system of their steam turbine generator. This lube oil system posed a unique set of challenges to overcome. It had three bearing housings that were open to the atmosphere, which provides a great risk of spills during oil flushing operations.
Pre-Engineering of Steam Blows for an Alberta Refinery
Our engineers were mobilized to a central Alberta Refinery to perform pre-engineering of steam blows for our client. The initial step consisted of field verification of the system and proposed steam blow points.
Pre-Engineering to Achieve Under Budget, Ahead of Schedule Execution
A Northern Alberta mine required air blowing to be performed on multiple systems throughout their facility. Prior to the execution of any work onsite, pre-engineering was performed. Our engineers mobilized to the site to conduct planning of the entire job scope.
This was the first vapour-phase application where the entire crude unit was to be degassed and decontaminated simultaneously. Previously, the client had broken down the unit into separate individual stages with each degassing operation taking place over 48-hours.
An Alberta power producer had a bearing failure in the 100 megawatt natural gas peak unit turbine. This piece of equipment cleanliness and sensitivity is comparable to that of a jet engine. The oil within the system was badly burnt and filled with microscopic particles.
