Shell lets Quest project contract to Fluor

Shell Canada Ltd. has let a contract to Fluor Corp. for engineering, procurement, and construction of its Quest carbon capture and storage (CCS) project in Alberta. Shell announced the decision to proceed with the project linked with the Scotford Upgrader near Edmonton, Alta., last month (OGJ Online, Sept. 5, 2012).

The Athabasca Oil Sands Project, a consortium of Shell, Chevron Canada Ltd., and Marathon Oil Corp., owns the upgrader.

The Quest facility will capture more than 1 million tonnes/year of carbon dioxide and transport it through an 80-km pipeline to an injection facility to the north. The Albertan and Canadian governments are providing financial assistance.

The project is expected to cut direct CO2 emissions by the upgrader by as much as 35%.
