SNC-Lavalin has been awarded a contract by MacKay Operating Corp. to provide detailed engineering and procurement services for the MacKay River Central Plant Project.

The central processing plant will be designed to process 35,000 barrels per day of bitumen steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) production. The central plant will be located approximately 40 km west of Fort McMurray, Alberta.

“Our SAGD team has industry-leading knowledge of oil sands technology and heavy oil recovery, as well as extensive experience on many similar SAGD projects. This award confirms our ongoing position as a SAGD service provider of choice in the oil sands market in Alberta,” said Andy Mackintosh, Executive Vice-President, SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. “We are looking forward to working with MacKay Operating Corp. on this project.”
The engineering phase is underway and construction is scheduled to begin in Q3 2012. The expected mechanical completion date for the construction is 2014.

MacKay Operating Corp. (MOC) is a Calgary-based joint venture between the subsidiaries of PetroChina Company Limited (60%) and Athabasca Oil Sands Corp. (40%). MOC is focused on the development of a jointly owned asset (MacKay River oil sands lease) and is committed to developing the assets in a socially responsible manner and utilizing environmentally friendly SAGD technology. The MacKay River Commercial Project is expected to produce 150,000 bpd bitumen with an initial phase of 35,000 bpd projected for 2014 start-up.
