Ausenco has significant experience in Oil Sands and Thermal projects including central processing facilities, well pads, and flow lines.

Our designs for numerous operators, complemented by our development of a variety of facility configurations, give us access to extensive industry and benchmarking information. This enables Ausenco to design a facility or complete sustaining and maintenance capital projects that allow the operator to get the most out of existing assets.

We help keep production facilities in optimum operating condition and effectively utilise debottlenecking processes to increase production. When equipment upgrades are called for, we implement with minimum disruption and work closely with clients’ operational teams to understand the specific challenges and nuances of the plant.
