Sunrise Oil Sands Project

bpd oil sands project
Office: Calgary 
Customer: Husky Energy 
Location: Canada 
Timeframe: 2005 - 2008 

WorleyParsons was retained to provide conceptual engineering design for the Husky Sunrise Oil Sands Project.

Using a unique approach to integrated water management, WorleyParsons defined water treatment solutions for this large 300,000 bpd project. Water treatment strategy recommended replacement of conventional de-oiling with ceramic membrane de-oiling and falling film evaporation using mechanical vapor compression (MVC) for high-pressure drum boiler feed water.

This process included innovative management of MVC blowdown for optimal water recycling and waste disposal, chemistry issues relating to volatile silica, polymerization of organics, and deep well disposal of concentrated waste streams.
