A joint venture of AMEC and Black & McDonald has been chosen to design and manage the construction of new natural gas production and processing facilities in the Sable Offshore Energy Project in Nova Scotia.
The $95 million contract is with ExxonMobil for a period of five years, with an option to extend for an additional five years. The contract is for engineering, procurement and construction project management, and covers both the offshore and onshore facilities.
The Sable Offshore Energy Project began production in 1999. The facilities include the Thebaud offshore facility and the unattended Venture, North Triumph and Alma platforms. The contract also covers the Goldboro and Point Tupper onshore gas plants which process the natural gas for transmission to the Northeastern United States.
AMEC and Black & Mcdonald have been involved in oil and gas projects in Atlantic Canada ever since the 1960s when they were involved in a Chevron/Irving refinery.
