The AOSP Expansion project was a $4B dollar expansion of the existing Shell Albian facility. It included the Jackpine Mine, new extraction, tailings, froth and utilities facilities. Phase 1 ran from Q3 2006 to Q2 2010.

We were the general contractor for the extraction and tailings portion of this project and was responsible for the completion of all aspects of the project, including civil, mechanical, structural, tankage, electrical and instrumentation.

Our scope was approximately 8 million man-hours. JV Driver was involved with the entire scope of this project, including both labour strategies and constructability. The project was completed meeting schedule and budget milestones, while ensuring quality and safety, with less than 0.5% rework, productivity over 1.15 and no Lost Time Incidents.

JV Driver Fabricators completed all fabrication and module construction for JV Driver’s scope of work, including 22 Extraction Modules, 9 Tailings Pump Houses and 49 Froth Modules.
