Irving Oil lets New Brunswick refinery contract

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Dec. 20--Irving Oil Ltd. has selected Fluor Canada, a subsidiary of Fluor Corp., to perform front-end engineering design for a proposed $7 billion, 300,000-bpd refinery to be constructed in St. John, New Brunswick, 65 miles from the US border.

Irving conducted initial feasibility work and informal public consultation in 2006, and has been engaged since January 2007 in permitting, public consultation, and engineering design for the proposed refinery. It would be situated near Irving's existing 300,000- b/d refinery and the existing Irving Canaport deepwater crude oil terminal, which receives cargoes via very large crude carriers.

Construction would begin in 2011, and operations start-up is scheduled for 2015.
