Fluor awarded contract for Imperial renewable diesel project in Canada
Fluor Corp. announced Oct. 24 that it was awarded a reimbursable front-end engineering and detailed design, engineering and procurement services contract for Imperial as the company progresses plans to develop a world-class renewable diesel complex at its Strathcona refinery near Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
The new complex is expected to be the largest renewable diesel production facility in Canada and will produce approximately 20,000 barrels (840,000 gallons) of renewable diesel per day, or approximately 285 million gallons per year, from locally sourced feedstocks.
Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the third quarter of 2022.

Fluor will design and integrate a new renewable diesel unit into the existing Strathcona refinery.
The integration will include a series of utility tie-ins, electrical and control-systems integration as well as commodity storage, loading and unloading capabilities.
Fluor delivers energy-transition projects across the entire energy value chain that are safely and sustainably designed, built and maintained.
Fluor’s breadth of experience includes solutions that help to reduce carbon emissions and to meet clients’ sustainability commitments.
