Oil Sands

Pipeline and facility construction at Suncor’s Firebag plant north of Ft. McMurray, Alberta. Morrison Knudsen has provided upgrade and construction services to nearly all oilsands plants in northern Alberta. The Company performed the original infrastructure at Syncrude in 1965 which included stripping the site, exploration roads, building the first pipeline from the plant and drilling. The Company later built the roads, bridges and ice bridges for Shells’ Alsands project later re-named Albian. The Company has performed additional work in the area including the construction for a natural gas fired cogeneration plant for a SADG facility, water treatment facilities and a desulfurization unit.
