Fluor to build Shell’s Quest carbon-capture facility in Canada  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Fluor Corp. (Irving, Tex.; www.fluor.com) announced today that Shell selected the firm as its engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for Shell’s carbon capture facility for its flagship carbon capture and storage (CCS) Quest project at the Athabasca Oil Sands project in Alberta, Canada. The Quest project is being built on behalf of the Athabasca Oil Sands Project joint venture owners (including Shell, Chevron and Marathon Oil) with support from the Canadian and Alberta governments. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the third quarter. The Athabasca Oil Sands Project produces bitumen, which is piped to Shell’s Scotford Upgrader. Fluor will provide full EPC services using its patent-pending and innovative 3rd Gen Modular Execution approach for a 1.1-million metric-tons-per-year carbon capture facility at the Scotford Upgrader near Edmonton, Alberta. Captured carbon dioxide will be sent about 80 km from the facility via underground pipeline to an underground storage site. Fluor has been providing preliminary services and front-end engineering and design for Quest since 2009.
