|CONTRACT TYPE:||Stipulated Sum|
Bird, in collaboration with its subsidiary, Nason, is completing work at two locations as part of Enbridge Pipelines (Athabasca) Inc.’s JACOS Pipeline project. This includes work at Enbridge Athabasca’s existing Cheecham Terminal and the JACOS Hangingstone steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) in-situ recovery site. This pipeline project and associated work will accommodate the need for increased crude oil transportation capacity and enable the delivery of crude oil to other existing pipelines and facilities.
Bird and Nason’s work at the existing Cheecham Terminal included the installation of piping, structural steel platforms, as well as the installation of owner supplied equipment including a metering skid, a launching trap to assist in the maintenance and inspection of the pipeline, and various electrical equipment. At the JACOS Hangingstone SAGD in-situ recovery site, the team constructed a two-pump booster station. Work included piling; concrete foundations and equipment pads; civil earthworks; structural steel supports and platforms; electrical and instrumentation; mechanical piping; and SCADA system equipment. Benefiting the client, Bird and Nason self-performed the majority of the work including the off-site fabrication.
Bird implemented a robust quality management and document control system that aligned with Enbridge’s requirements and supported our client in meeting regulatory approvals. Close tracking of our quality, safety and environmental performance, in collaboration with Enbridge, allowed the team to identify opportunities for improvement and implement strategies to address them.
