Using its proprietary 3rd
Gen Modular ExecutionSM approach, Fluor designed and
built the facility using 69 separate interlocking modules that were
assembled at the jobsite. This Athabasca oil sands project was delivered
under budget and on schedule with an exemplary construction safety
Fluor was responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction
services for the capture portion of the Quest CCS
project that was built adjacent to an existing operating facility.
In order to minimize the capital costs of the new facility and reduce
disruptions to the existing operating facility, Fluor implemented its
modular execution strategy to fabricate the interlocking modules offsite
and then deliver them for installation. Fluor’s design approach, which
compresses the space requirements of a typical plant, reduced material
quantities and the construction labor hours required in the field. The
approach also delivered capital efficiencies to the project and
shortened the time to completion following delivery of the final module.
“The successful completion of the Shell Quest CCS project demonstrates
the value of Fluor’s 3rd Gen Modular Execution, an innovative project
execution delivery that lowers costs and improves schedule
predictability for our clients,” said Jim
Brittain, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business in the
Americas region. “By implementing this technology in the early phases
and delivering it throughout the full project execution, we were able to
reduce the plot space of the facility by approximately 20 percent and
eliminate material and labor costs from the project. This brought
additional value to our client and enabled us to complete construction
Fluor’s 3rd Gen Modular Execution platform optimizes work at site in
order to reduce costs, improve safety, enhance worker productivity and
quality assurance and reduce the overall environmental footprint.
The project, built by Fluor’s direct-hire construction staff, was
completed with a strong safety performance that achieved a zero lost
time incident rate with more than 1.3 million hours worked.
CCS project will capture approximately one million metric tons of
carbon dioxide per year from the Scotford Upgrader and store it deep
underground. The project was recognized as a 2015 Global Best Project by Engineering
News-Record in the Power/Industrial category and is a finalist for
the 2015 Platts Global Energy Awards Engineering Project of the Year.
