TORONTO (ICIS news)--Jacobs has won a contract for work on the sulphur complex of Suncor’s Voyageur bitumen upgrader project near Fort McMurray in Canada’s Alberta province, the US petrochemicals engineering firm said on Tuesday.


Jacobs’ contract was for detailed engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services for the sulphur complex, which included two sour water stripper units, one amine unit, three sulphur recovery trains, sulphur degassing and a sulphur truck loading terminal, it said.


Financial terms were not disclosed.


The Voyageur project is part of Suncor’s plan to increase its oil sands production capacity to 550,000 bbl/day by 2012.


Canada’s petrochemicals industry is looking to Alberta’s expanding oil sands and bitumen sector as a source of additional petrochemical feedstocks.
