Cutbank Ridge Partnership
Near Dawson Creek, British Columbia, Canada

Encana Cutbank Ridge Program

Fluor provided engineering, procurement and construction management services for three similar sweet gas plant projects near Dawson Creek, British Columbia, Canada. The three projects, Sunrise 04-26, Tower 03-07, and Saturn 15-27 Phase 2, are part of the Cutbank Ridge Partnership Program to develop natural gas and natural gas liquid (NGL) production.

The plants will have the capacity to process a combined additional 800 million cubic feet of gas per day. Fluor achieved mechanical completion of the project in November 2017.

Client's Challenge

The new facilities will receive sweet natural gas, remove water and hydrocarbons, chill and compress the gas to meet transmission pipeline requirements, and recover NGL from the gas streams.

The Cutbank Ridge Partnership is an agreement between Mitsubishi Corporation and Encana Corporation involving the long-term development of natural gas resources in Northeast British Columbia.

Fluor's Solution

Fluor has been supporting these projects since the initial conceptual stages and has deployed modular execution strategies and global sourcing to support on-time and capital efficient delivery of the completed facilities.

By executing a program of three projects, Fluor has also taken advantage of the opportunity to leverage the best practices and synergies gained from each of the projects.


The project reached mechanical completion in November 2017. Construction of the Sunrise 04-26, Tower 03-07 and Saturn 15-27 facilities was completed safely and with no lost-time incidents in just over two years, ahead of schedule and approximately 10 percent under budget.
