Conventional oil and gas experience

At home and abroad

Our local experience is bolstered by our large portfolio of diverse projects. Learn more about our conventional oil & gas experience worldwide.

Wood Group Mustang has in-depth experience in a wide variety of conventional oil and natural gas facilities EPCM projects, from sweet and sour gas tie-in programs, oil batteries and satellites, through to grass-roots gas processing plants, field compression and coal-bed methane (CBM) projects. Established by our predecessors in Canada, Wood Group Mustang has a strong presence in core conventional oil and gas development in Alberta, northeast British Columbia and Saskatchewan. Internationally, we are engaged in a number of critical sour gas projects in China, as well as midstream projects in the United States.

We also have experience in water flood installations, including injection skids and flow lines for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and produced water treatment and water disposal facilities. Wood Group Mustang provides hands-on experience in the use of fiberglass, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or steel pipelines for low pressure flow lines and associated produced gas gathering.

Oil processing facilities in Kazakhstan

Wood Group Mustang provided EPCM services for several projects in Kazakhstan, including a central oil processing battery, pump stations, a railway loading terminal, power generation and 120,000 bopd oil transmission pipeline. The work was performed for PetroKazakhstan, formerly Hurricane Hydrocarbons of Calgary.

Primary (cold) heavy oil production

A key client planned a major expansion at its Cold Lake property to handle a significant increase in primary heavy oil production. The central plant was designed to handle upwards of 10,000 bopd of heavy oil plus associated sand and water from over 300 wells. The facility encompasses truck offloading, oil treating, gas handling, sand and water disposal, plus related storage requirements. The facility was built within the original AFE budget and schedule with Wood Group Mustang providing full EPCM services.

Liquids-rich gas processing plant

A Calgary-based energy trust has rapidly become a significant producer in Saskatchewan and was looking to enhance their position in the Estevan area by developing a new gas plant to handle the liquids-rich, sour associated gas that resulted from their aggressive production strategy. The facility, successfully delivered by Wood Group Mustang in 2007, incorporates sour gas inlet separation and compression, amine sweetening, glycol refrigeration and liquids storage.

Truck offloading terminal

In order to supplement bitumen supply, a major Calgary-based energy producer needed to quickly build a truck offloading terminal at their SAGD (steam assisted gravity drainage) plant to handle multiple trucks in a prompt, safe and environmentally sound manner. Wood Group Mustang responded to this pressing need and the new offloading facility has worked at or over capacity of 48 truckloads per day since it was commissioned in mid-2007.
