Pre-Commissioning and Commissioning a Northern Alberta SAGD Facility
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.

Open Loop Lube Oil Flushing
Open Loop Lube Oil Flushing

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
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.

Stuck Smart Tool
Stuck Smart Tool

An Alberta oil and gas provider called FourQuest Energy with a crisis. They had tried to perform a smart tool run on 17km of 24” line, propelled with air, but the smart tool was stuck in the line.

Pre-Engineering to Achieve Under Budget, Ahead of Schedule Execution
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.

Degassing and Decontamination of a Crude Unit
Degassing and Decontamination of a Crude Unit

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.

Bearing Failure in 100MW Turbine
Bearing Failure in 100MW Turbine

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.

Steam Blowing MP Steam Header
Steam Blowing MP Steam Header

A major global oil and gas producer approached FourQuest Energy to perform steam blows on the MP Steam header in their Northern Alberta facility. The MP steam header consists of 400m of 30” piping.

Engineering Efficiencies Developed for Air Blowing
Engineering Efficiencies Developed for Air Blowing

A northern Alberta Oil Sands company required 1km of 24” BFW line to be cleaned using targeted air blows as part of the pre-commissioning process.
