Long Lake SAGD Project – generic design to keep down costs

Amec Foster Wheeler’s Three Streams Engineering (TSE) has completed both FEED and detailed  execution of a multi-phased scope of work for the Nexen Long Lake Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) project and Kinosis SAGD Phase 1A Facility, Canada. Its central processing facility is designed to produce 70,000 barrels per day (bpd) of bitumen from the Athabasca Oil Sands deposit. A total of seven modules were conceptually designed and procured with a core TSE and Nexen project team.

nexen-content.jpgTSE designed a ten- and a six-well-pair module, and the execution strategy was to take forward those designs as ‘generic’ for the remaining five modules. The engineering concept of designing and executing the ‘generic’ modules positively impacts the construction execution, and applying the ‘carbon-copy’ theory in the module yard ultimately reduces TIC for our client.

“Solid design and rapid deployment can be a game-changer from a client’s capital expenditure perspective.”
Location:Approximately 50km south of Fort McMurray in Alberta, Canada
Scope:FEED and detailed execution
