CALGARY, A.B. — It has been announced that the Saturn 15-27 Phase 2 sweet gas plant project near Dawson Creek will be handled by Fluor Corporation, who will also be in charge of engineering, procurement and construction management for the project — or EPCM, for short.

Cutbank Ridge Partnership, an agreement between Mitsubishi and Encana and involves the long-term development of natural gas resources in the northeast, awarded the project to develop natural gas and natural gas liquid production.

This includes three similar projects: Sunrise 04-26, Tower 03-07 and Saturn 15-27 Phase 2. Fluor is also handling EPCM for these projects.

The new facilities will have many functions, including receiving sweet natural gas, removing water and hydrocarbons, chilling and compressing the gas to meet transmission pipeline requirements and recovering NGL from the gas streams.

All of the plants combined will be able to process an additional 800 million cubic feet of gas per day at peak capacity.

Fluor, with Canadian offices based in both Calgary and Vancouver, did not release financial details on the deal.
