CNRL Wolf Lake Thermal In Situ

Designing to do more with less

Bonnyville, Alberta

Working together isn’t a concept that’s exclusive to people. At CNRL’s Wolf Lake operation, multiple pieces of equipment must work together as smoothly as soft butter on toast to fuel the slop oil treatment process.

By installing a centrifuge system and associated equipment, CNRL can treat and recover slop oil at the plant and keep operations at Wolf Lake clean and lean. This new system means equipment lasts longer, there’s less cleaning and desanding, chemical costs are lower, and performance is more reliable.

To get to these great results, everything from the building’s concrete foundation up had to work as one. From new oil tanks, pumps, and a centrifuge package, to slurry injection tanks and pumps, we made sure everything performed as planned.

Our engineering and design team worked on multiple engineering packages to the satisfaction of CNRL. We took care of everything from piping and instrumentation diagrams to procuring equipment. We also handled mechanical and instrument datasheets, motor control and power design, pile and concrete foundation design, SD Key and control philosophy and schematics, stress analysis, and modelling.
