Fort McMurray, Alberta

Flynn Industrial has had a long term involvement with the CNRL Kirby Project. We undertook Kirby South contracted by Bird Construction running from 2012 to the early part of 2013, and then were issued a Notice of Award directly by CNRL for Kirby North in July 2013.

Kirby South operations are located approximately 85 km northeast of Lac La Biche, AB. CNRL uses Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) technology for the recovery of bitumen from the in situ oil sands resources.

Flynn Scope of Work:

  • Water Treating Building
  • Oil Treating Building
  • Steam Generation Building

The project includes below activities for all three buildings:

  • Engineering, procurement and installation of structural steel including roof and wall platforms
  • Procurement and installation of cladding systems for walls and roofs with design assist.
  • Procurement and installation of man door canopies

Many pieces of large process equipment were already in place. This made access at ground and high level a real challenge. Flynn was commended on their abilities and the buildings were finished to a very high standard.
