Project Description

Canadian Natural Resources Limited (CNRL) is one of the largest independent crude oil and natural gas producers in the world. The Horizon Oil Sands project is 100% owned and operated by Canadian Natural to facilitate the extraction of oil sands reserves and production of synthetic crude oil. The Horizon Oil Sands are located 70 kilometres north of Fort McMurray, Alberta in the Athabasca region.

CNRL acted as their own primary contractor on the Horizon Oil Sands through start-up and the completion of Phase I construction. Tom Jones Corporation was the sub-contractor responsible for the Plant 64 Piling and Concrete foundations.

Working on an extremely busy construction site Tom Jones Corporation Superintendents and Project Managers directed our workforce through the completion of the excavation and dewatering required for piles and pilecaps and the forming of foundations and placement of more than 4400m3 of concrete.

The complexity of the Horizion Oil sands project required coordination with CNRL for logistics, equipment access and site movement.
