The Scotford Upgrader Project
The Scotford Upgrader project is located next to Shell Canada's Scotford Refinery near Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada. The Scotford Upgrader uses hydrogen-addition technology to upgrade the high viscosity "extra-heavy" crude oil (called bitumen) from the Muskeg River Mine into a wide range of synthetic crude oils.
The Scotford Upgrader - which is part of the joint venture project between Shell Canada, Chevron Canada (a wholly owned subsidiary of Chevron Corporation) and Marathon Oil Sands L.P. - is operated by Shell Canada.
Westlake Industries was contracted by Bechtel Canada Ltd. to supply prefabricated piping for the Shell Canada UE-1 off-module project. Westlake's scope of work exceeded 22,000 pipe spools and 670,000 diameter inches to be completed in a 16 month schedule. Pipe sizes ranged from NPS ¾" diameter through NPS 60" diameter and included normal and low temperature carbon steel, 304, 316, and duplex stainless steel, alloy 20, 1 ¼" chrome alloy, titanium spools and related pipe supports.
