Fluor has received a front-end engineering and design (FEED) services contract from North West Redwater Partnership for its new refinery project in Alberta, Canada.
The value of the contract was not disclosed.
Under the contract, Flour will provide FEED services to two sections of the refinery, which will include upgrade bitumen, separating components and removing impurities, and will also re-evaluate the FEED deliverables based on a revised crude slate.
The Redwater bitumen refinery will be located north of Edmonton and will use oil sands bitumen to produce diesel, diluent, naphtha and other related products.
The refinery will incorporate gasification and carbon capture and storage to reduce its environmental impact.
