WorleyParsons wins $400m EPC contract

WorleyParsons has been awarded a $402 million EPC contract for the MacKay River oil sands project.

The contract, awarded by the MacKay Operating Corporation, will be worked as a joint venture with CPECC Canada.

The two companies will be responsible for the engineering, procurement, modularisation and field construction of nine steam assisted gravity drain wells and associated gathering lines.

CEO of WorleyParsons, Andrew Wood, said the company “is excited to be working with MacKay Operating Corporation, and our consortium partner CPECC, on the MacKay River project”.

“We believe that our integrated EPC project delivery model combining the local strength of WorleyParsons with the expertise and capacity of our partner CPECC, offers an exciting new approach for the successful delivery of this project.”

This win comes a month after the contractor predicted a rise in revenue for this financial year, after it recorded a 19.2 per cent rise in the previous year’s earnings, taking it to $8.8 bn.
