At any given time, Bantrel is executing multiple projects across Canada, and internationally through our parent company Bechtel. Our signature Bantrel projects include EPC services for a six-drum grass roots coker plant in the Alberta oilsands, EP/EPCM services for various cogeneration projects in Alberta and Eastern Canada, and EPCM services for many greenfield and brownfield refinery projects across Canada.

Confidentiality agreements with several of our customers prohibit the listing of all archived and current projects executed by Bantrel. Here’s a small sample of the world class projects on our resume.

ConocoPhillips Surmont Phase 2 Project

Client: ConocoPhillips Canada

Location: Fort McMurray, Alberta

Duration: 2007 - present

Services: Engineering, procurement, construction and construction management

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.
