AMEC BDR provided engineering, procurement and construction management support for the McKay steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) facilities. Thanks to the innovative plant design, once the facility is operational – it will require fewer operators per shift.
AMEC BDR also redesigned the well pads to reduce required footprint while providing the capability for expansion or removal of well pairs as production needs dictate.
The project will be completed in two phases wherein each will include a Design Based Memorandum (DBM), Front End Engineering Design (FEED), Detailed Engineering, Construction Management (CM) Support and Commissioning. Phase I of the McKay SAGD project is currently being constructed and Phase II is in the DBM phase at present.
The McKay facilities are designed to produce 36,000 barrels of bitumen per day and recycle greater than 95% of the produced water for steam reinjection.
