Suncor selects Honeywell for oil sands project

HOUSTON -- Honeywell Process Solutions has been selected by Suncor Energy to provide automation systems for a new multi-billion dollar Fort Hills Oil Sands project in Alberta, Canada. Honeywell will supply technology to integrate the site’s control and safety systems, manage alarms, and provide advanced simulation software that enables critical operations planning and operator training.

As the Main Automation Contractor (MAC), Honeywell will play a key role in helping the facility achieve its future productivity and operational efficiency goals. The facility is expected to be operational in late 2017.

The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers forecasts production from the Canadian oil sands to exceed 5 MMbpd by 2030, up from 1.8 MMbpd in 2012.

 “As energy demand continues to grow, the Canadian oil sands have become an important resource,” said Frank Whitsura, V.P., Honeywell Process Solutions. “Honeywell has the expertise to fully integrate this project’s assets, from monitors and sensors in the field, to system controls, to planning and logistics. Suncor will also be able to use our innovative technology to run a wide range of simulations that will help maximize the efficiency of the operations.”
