Fluor mobilized a rapid response team to quickly assess the damages at the Syncrude
plant. After preparing a detailed plan to rebuild the facility, engineers and construction
workers assembled at the jobsite to begin reconstruction of the damaged facilities.
Fluor implemented a comprehensive safety program that yielded a low accident record
in spite of severe weather and extremely congested conditions.
Fluor was successful in assisting the Client with emergency repairs and in concert,
modernizing the technology on the Coker Unit No. 2. Fluor developed stringent quality
control procedures to test plant equipment, which led to a trouble-free start-up.
After the project was completed, the plant capacity improved to 87,000 barrels per
day, an increase of 7,000 barrels from pre-fire capacity.
This fast-track project was executed entirely at the jobsite and took 116 days to
reach project completion.
Syncrude was very satisfied with the quality of Fluor’s emergency response and selected
Fluor to perform similar follow-on work on another unit in Alberta.
