WorleyParsons, Intergraph, Devon and Canadian megaprojects

Data re-use key to increased adoption of SmartPlant for tar sands megaprojects.

Devon Energy has awarded WorleyParsons Canada an engineering services contract for its Jackfish II 35,000 bpd steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) project, Alberta. WorleyParsons’ MEG Division is to provide detailed engineering design services and procurement for Jackfish’s central processing facility. The deal is worth an estimated $32.6 million CDN.

In a separate announcement, Worley-Parsons has upped its adoption of Intergraph’s plant management software—particularly the SmartPlant engineering and design solution. WorleyParsons’ director Lindsay Wheeler said, ‘SmartPlant supports global workshare and provides data in a format that customers can re-use, allowing for more efficient design solutions with improved integrity.’

WorleyParsons’ 2,000 oil sands specialists have been involved in over 3,000 oil sands upgrading and extraction projects, from feasibility studies to mega-project construction. WorleyParsons’ ‘EcoNomics’ initiatives target ‘sustainability’ in engineering with for instance, the replacement of natural gas as fuel for steam and power generation and the application of novel water treatment technologies.
