Excelsior Engineering Awarded EPCM Contract to Construct Innovative Pilot Facility for Field Upgrading

Excelsior Engineering has been selected as the Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management contractor by Field Upgrading for the construction of an innovative pilot facility that aims to commercialize a technology to improve the economics of upgrading Alberta's bitumen.

Excelsior Engineering is a Calgary, Alberta, Canada-based facilities engineering firm. Excelsior provides project engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM), production optimization, environmental/regulatory and operational troubleshooting services to the Oil & Gas industry.

In 2012, Excelsior Engineering joined efforts with Vepica Grupo Internacional (Vepica), a multinational engineering and construction company based in Spain and with offices in Houston, Colombia, Argentina, Mexico and China. Vepica is the ideal partner for Excelsior as they provide a growth platform from which Excelsior's strength in streamlined project execution can safely transition into a broader base of major project opportunities.

Field Upgrading is a privately owned company leading the commercialization of the patented MSU process for use in Alberta's oil sands. This scalable, cost-effective process produces a high-yield, sweet heavy oil product with no TAN or heavy metals from a variety of heavy sour crudes that is suitable for transport with minimal or no diluent or for direct use as a fuel source.
