Unconventional Oil & Gas
AMEC provides a full range of services to the oil sands industry, from initial studies and environmental consulting through to operator training and management of some of the largest construction projects in North America
AMEC has worked on almost every mineable lease in Canada since development of the industry in the 1950s. Our reputation in the application of new and established technologies means we are the pre-eminent provider of initial studies, design, environmental consulting, engineering, project management, construction services and operator training. Our areas of expertise span not only mineable extraction and in-situ bitumen production but also pipelines, power generation and infrastructure for bitumen extraction plants.
Our experience in oil sands and the wider oil and gas processing industry, together with our approach to risk management and our commitment to sustainable business practices, enables us to develop safe, practical and economic designs for our customers.
The aggressive growth in the oil sands market has placed huge demands on technical resources across North America. We can provide a centre of excellence in Calgary, while drawing on global resources from our Canadian and international offices to meet the growing shortage of skilled personnel.
In addition we have established a sound track record in the development and EPCM (engineering, procurement, construction and maintenance) of in-situ heavy oil facilities using SAGD (steam assisted gravity drainage) and other applicable technologies within the oil sands industry.
