Flint Energy Services was awarded a contract extension for work on Suncor Energy's (TSX:SU) (NYSE:SU) Firebag oil sands Steam-Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) projects near Fort McMurray, Alberta, for site-wide construction and commissioning services.
The contract extension of approximately $78 million will increase the Flint's total contract scope to just over $110 million.
Work on the contract will be completed by Flint's Facility Infrastructure Division and will employ over 700 workers through early 2011.
The Firebag SAGD project is recovering bitumen from the oil sands in the Athabasca region of Alberta.
