The Surmont Project is an important part of ConocoPhillips Canada’s oilsands portfolio. Located in the Athabasca region of Northern Alberta, the Surmont SAGD facility currently comprises Surmont 1 and Surmont 2, with the potential for significant future expansions. Surmont 1 began commercial oil production in October 2007 and Surmont 2 is expected to begin production in 2015.
The Surmont 2 Project, with which Bantrel has been involved since 2008, will have a nameplate capacity of 83,000 barrels per day. Once complete, Surmont 2 will be the largest SAGD production facility built in a single phase. In May 2008, Bantrel was awarded front-end engineering activities (FEL-3) for Surmont Phase 2. In May 2010, Bantrel was awarded the EPC phase for the entire project, which includes Central Processing Facilities and Field Facilities areas.
Construction began at the Surmont 2 site in early 2010. Construction management services across the site are being provided by Bantrel’s construction management affiliate, Bantrel Management Services Co.
