SA Energy Group, a 50/50 joint venture between Aecon and Robert B. Somerville Co. Ltd, and Quanta Services Inc. have been selected by Enbridge Pipelines Inc. for work on the Line 3 Replacement Phase 2 project in Canada.
SA Energy has been awarded a $282 million contract for Spreads 8 and 9 of the Line 3 Replacement Phase 2 project in Manitoba.
The scope of work includes constructing 92.2 km (57 miles) of pipeline in the area of Brandon, Manitoba for Spread 8, and constructing 96.5 km (60 miles) of pipeline near Morden, Manitoba for Spread 9 extending to the Canada-U.S. border.
Construction is expected to commence in August 2018, with anticipated substantial completion by the end of 2018. Recently, under Phase 1 of the Line 3 Replacement project, SA Energy Group successfully completed 261 km (162 miles) of construction for Spreads 3 and 4 in Saskatchewan.
“SA Energy Group’s experience executing Spreads 3 and 4 with outstanding safety and quality performance, engagement of Indigenous Peoples and regulatory compliance, highlights the joint venture’s proven capability to deliver key components of this project,” said Mark Scherer, Executive Vice President, Aecon Industrial. “The award of Spreads 8 and 9 solidifies SA Energy Group as a partner-of-choice for Enbridge and Aecon looks forward to further mobilizing pipeline capabilities while working with our partners on this important project.”
Quanta was selected for three spreads of Phase 2. Quanta’s scope of work includes the construction and installation of approximately 380 km (236 miles) of new 36-in. diameter crude oil mainline pipe, which will begin in White City, Saskatchewan and continue to Brandon, Manitoba.
Quanta’s construction on the project is expected to begin in August 2018 and is anticipated to achieve substantial completion in the first half of 2019.
