Aecon partnership awarded major Alberta pipeline expansion contract
A partnership between Aecon and Robert B. Somerville Co has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract by Inter Pipeline Fund for construction work related to a major pipeline expansion in Alberta.
The Aecon/Somerville joint venture won a $100 million contract from Inter Pipeline, which is implementing a major integrated development plan for the Cold Lake and Polaris pipeline systems. The work involves the construction of pumping stations, metering facilities, junction sites and associated pipeline connections at multiple sites.
Work is scheduled to begin this month, with completion expected in 2014.
In July, the joint venture was awarded a $600 million contract from Inter Pipeline for the installation of 560 kilometres of underground pipeline to expand the Cold Lake and Polaris pipelines. The project involves the distribution of diluent between Edmonton and Fort McMurray, as well as engineering support and constructability reviews.
