Imperial Oil's Kearl Oil Sands project is located 70 kilometers north of Fort McMurray, Alberta, in the Athabasca oil sands region. Kiewit provided all the labor, construction equipment and bulk materials to build the Froth Treatment Facility and Flare Silo for this major oil sands project.
TIC, a subsidiary of Kiewit, constructed 18 pump stations and associated work for the Keystone Pipeline program. Keystone’s original pipeline system included a total of 39 pump stations delivering up to 590,000 bpd of oil from Canada’s Alberta oil fields and the Bakken formation to refineries across the U.S. Midwest.
Kiewit fabricated the topsides and mooring piles for this semi-submersible platform.
Construction started in March of 2011 and the construction phase of the project ended in April of 2013. The modules, flare boom, and pipe bridges totaled more than 17,500 tons.
Kiewit and joint venture partner IHI were awarded an EPC contract for the Cove Point LNG Export Project, which involves construction of liquefaction facilities for exporting LNG at the existing Cove Point LNG Terminal on the Chesapeake Bay in Lusby, MD. Together, the new and existing facilities will provide bi-directional import and export capabilities at Cove Point.
TIC, a Kiewit subsidiary, was awarded the lump sum contract to construct an expansion to the existing natural gas compressor facility near Douglas, Wyoming. The scope of work consisted of all associated structural, mechanical, electrical, and instrumentation work.
In 2008, TIC, a subsidiary of Kiewit, completed installation of a refurbished coker unit that was dismantled by TIC at a California refinery and relocated by Sinclair to Wyoming. TIC installed a total of eight major systems for this particular project: coker unit, two sulfur recovery units, two amine recovery units, sour water stripper, coke handling system, and 180 ft. flare system. TIC also built the entire project footprint—foundations, paving, structural steel, coker derrick structure, and several decks.
