The corrected release reads:

FLUOR TO BUILD SHELL’S QUEST CARBON CAPTURE FACILITY IN CANADA

World’s First Oil Sands Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS) Project

Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) announced today that Shell selected the firm as its engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for Shell’s carbon capture facility for its flagship Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Quest project at the Athabasca Oil Sands project in Alberta, Canada. The Quest project is being built on behalf of the Athabasca Oil Sands Project joint venture owners (including Shell, Chevron and Marathon Oil) with support from the Canadian and Alberta governments. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the third quarter.

“Shell’s confidence in choosing Fluor as its EPC contractor for this first-of-its-kind CCS project is a testament to our long-term, successful business relationships established by building Shell projects in Canada and throughout the world,” said Peter Oosterveer, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals Group. “Fluor has more than two decades of experience with carbon capture technologies and the Canadian oil sands industry, so this unique opportunity will demonstrate our project execution abilities to bring clean energy to the marketplace. The use of CCS technology will allow our customers to address their carbon footprint and sustainability needs.”

The Athabasca Oil Sands Project produces bitumen, which is piped to Shell’s Scotford Upgrader. Fluor will provide full EPC services using its patent-pending and innovative 3 rd Gen Modular Execution approach for a 1.1 million tonne-per-year carbon capture facility at the Scotford Upgrader near Edmonton, Alberta. Captured carbon dioxide will be sent about 80 kilometers from the facility via underground pipeline to an underground storage site. Fluor has been providing preliminary services and front-end engineering and design for Quest since 2009.
