SICIM Strengthens Canadian Footprint
Sicim’s growth path in Canada is reinforced by the acquisition of the Brewster Pipeline Project, one of the eight spreads part of the NGTL System Expansion.
Steel River Solutions and SICIM Canada have formed Steel River SICIM Pipeline (SRSP), a company established with a shared vision of common values of a privately held indigenous business. With diverse expertise in the oil & gas and construction industries, SRSP offers extensive knowledge and resources, providing a unique solution to the Canadian market. The Brewster Pipeline Project runs in Clearwater County, approximately 35 km north-west of Rocky Mountain House, Alberta. It consists of 49 km of 48” (1219.2 mm) diameter pipeline.
The project is located on 100% crown land and runs south to north, starting at the existing NGTL Vetchland compressor station and ending at the NGTL Nordegg compressor station. Construction works include the trenchless crossing of the North Saskatchewan River, an area of great environmental value, and pipelaying through the typical ‘muskeg’ wetland. SICIM plans to seize the opportunity to deploy the in-house welding system Fastweld. Measures are already in place to meet the stringent COVID-19 limitations, safeguard health of the workforce and maintain the contractual milestones of 2022.
