Worley (WOR) has been awarded a services contract by Imperial Oil Resources for the Kearl Oil Sands operation.

The module fabrication and field construction services contract was granted by Imperial Oil for an in-pit tailings infrastructure project in Alberta, Canada.

Under the contract, the WorleyCord team will do the module fabrication and assembly of the project’s first two phases at WorleyCord’s Edmonton modularization yard.

Field execution will then take place at the project site in the Fort McMurray area.

Robotic welding will be used in the fabrication, while HoloLens technology will be used to enhance health and safety outcomes by facilitating virtual site visits.

The Hololens is Microsoft’s take on augmented reality, which uses multiple sensors, advanced optics, and holographic processing to display information, blend with the real world, or even simulate a virtual world.

“Having worked together for more than 30 years, we are pleased to continue providing Imperial with integrated solutions on this large fabrication and construction project,” said Chris Ashton, Chief Executive Officer of Worley.

Worley was up 1.31 per cent on the back of the deal, trading at $10.81 at 2:46 pm AEDT.
