Aecon Group Inc. says it has been awarded a $250 million contract by Union Gas Limited for work on its Dawn-Parkway expansion project in Ontario. Aecon was also awarded a four-year Master Service Agreement (MSA) contract with Spectra Energy Transmission (Spectra Energy) for pipeline facilities work in Western Canada.
Aecon’s scope of work at the Union Gas project primarily relates to the construction of natural gas compressor facilities at its existing Bright, Dawn and Lobo compressor station locations across southwestern Ontario, the company said in a news release. Work has commenced and is scheduled to be complete by the fourth quarter of 2017. The contract value will be added to Aecon’s energy segment backlog in the second quarter of 2016.
The current scope of work for the MSA contract by Spectra Energy includes construction work at its compressor stations and related labour on pipeline facilities on its natural gas transmission system in British Columbia. Work on the four-year MSA, which includes future renewal provisions, has begun and is a recurring revenue contract.
“Aecon’s energy segment demonstrates strong backlog and diversification as we continue our commitment to delivering end-to-end turnkey solutions for our clients,” said Teri McKibbon, president and chief executive officer, Aecon Group Inc.
“Building partnerships and alliances forms the backbone of our business, and we look forward to working on these essential programs as we continue our strategic alliance with Union Gas and Spectra Energy in both eastern and western Canada,” Mark Scherer, executive vice-president, energy, said in a statement.
