Technip’s wholly-owned subsidiary KTI Corporation was awarded a purchase order by Snamprogetti Canada to design and supply ten Once Through Steam Generation (OTSG) units for the first phase of the Husky-operated Sunrise Oil Sands Energy Project. The OTSG units are an integral part of the Steam-Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) process being applied at Sunrise for the extraction of bitumen.
Sunrise is a SAGD Oil Sands Project being constructed approximately 60 kilometers northeast of Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada and operated by Husky Energy. Upon completion of Phase 1 of the project, the facility is expected to produce approximately 60,000 barrels per day of bitumen.
Snamprogetti Canada is the prime contractor for engineering, procurement and construction of the Central Plant Facility for Sunrise Phase 1 where the OTSGs will be used.
KTI's engineering center in Houston, Texas will execute the OTSG contract. Final fabrication and assembly of the OTSGs will occur in Tofield, Alberta. Final delivery and completion of these units is scheduled for the second half of 2012.
