Jacobs Receives Design Basis Memorandum Contract From Suncor For New Oilsands In-Situ Development

PASADENA, Calif. -- Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. has announced it was awarded a contract from Suncor Energy to provide project management and engineering services to complete the design basis memorandum (DBM) for its proposed Meadow Creek East facility in northeast Alberta.

Located 45 kilometres south of Fort McMurray, Meadow Creek is a steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) oilsands development and is jointly held by Suncor Energy (as the operator) and Nexen Energy ULC (non-operated).

The Meadow Creek East program is planned over two phases, with the anticipated construction of a nominal 40,000 barrels per day central processing facility replicated in each phase. Jacobs is working with Suncor to standardize the central processing facility design. The objective of this replication strategy is to reduce capital costs and maximize the potential delivery of industry-leading returns.

In making the announcement, Jacobs Group vice-president Tom Quinn stated, “We are excited to further strengthen our longstanding relationship with Suncor on the Meadow Creek program, which is expected to achieve a new industry benchmark in economic performance. The project will leverage our broad experience in this field as well as innovative lower cost SAGD solutions into the design basis.”

Jacobs is one of the world's largest and most diverse providers of technical professional and construction services.
