The Company has two core businesses, the Integrated Corridor and the Offshore. The Integrated Corridor is a unique, interconnected value chain that crosses the Canada-U.S. border and manufactures and supplies refined products to meet market demand. In the Offshore, high-netback production in the Asia Pacific and Atlantic regions includes fixed-price contracts and direct exposure to global pricing.
In 2019, The Company’s Western Canada business unit collaborated with Husky Midstream General Partnership (HMGP) to deliver a joint project – the Corser Gas Plant. Located in the Ansell area just south of Edson, Alberta, this is HMGP’s first investment in gas infrastructure. Husky built and operates the HMGP-owned facility, while HMGP has commercial responsibility.
The Corser gas plant is a typical industry standard shallow cut gas plant that started construction in June 2018, with peak construction occurring from November 2018 to April 2019. Husky employed an existing template for the front-end planning stage rather than customizations, made only minimal changes to a proven design and used vendors and contractors with strong track records of working with similar projects. A risk and economics-based evaluation process was implemented to manage any proposed changes, from design to construction.
With more than 350,000 people-hours worked to completion, the project was delivered safely, on time and under budget. The plant began commercial operation in November 2019 and serves Husky and third-party production in the Ansell area.
A key to the success of the project was alignment, collaboration and focus on safety by every member of the team. “Through strong communication and collaboration, we were able to execute and meet all of our milestones,” says Duane Rae, CEO of HMGP and VP of Husky. “We can maximize value for all stakeholders when we work together as a team.”
