LEDUC, AB, Sept. 23 /CNW Telbec/ - Supermetal is pleased to announce the
signing of 2 major structural steel contracts in the Alberta Oilsands vicinity
with Devon Energy for the Jackfish 2 SAGD project and EllisDon Construction
for the Suncor Voyageur administration building.
The Jackfish 2 contract was signed with Devon Energy spawned from the
success of the original Jackfish structural steel contract. The new contract
is for the supply of 3600 tons of fabricated structural steel comprising of
piperacks, a process building and equipment modules. Jackfish 2 will be a
stand alone SAGD plant adjacent to the original site 15 kilometers SE of the
town of Conklin. The site is in the initial phases of construction with first
oil anticipated in 2010 and a ramp-up capacity of 35,000 barrels per day.
The Suncor Voyageur administration building is a contract of firsts for
Supermetal; the company will be working with EllisDon's Edmonton branch and
indirectly for Suncor Energy for the first time. Located 20km north of Fort
McMurray, the 286,000-square-foot administrative building is an eight-story
steel tower that will be comprised of 3,000 tons of steel structure.
Supermetal's construction subsidiary Supermetal-Mojan based in Leduc, Alberta,
will be performing the site erection. The total Suncor Voyageur village
project is valued at $153M and expected to be completed in 2011.
"The Devon project represents the benefit of our previous performance
from Jackfish 1 and our ability to meet a tight schedule. The Voyageur admin
building will be a stepping stone in developing a strong working relationship
with the parties involved. We look forward to excelling at both projects in
the next 6 months and continue to broaden our experience in Alberta", said
Jean-Francois Blouin, General Manager for Supermetal.
