URS is one of the largest and most experienced providers of fabrication and modularization services for the oil and gas industry. We specialize in fabricating large and complex facility components, known as modules, for oil sands extraction facilities, gas processing plants, and power and co-generation facilities. These modules contain the mechanical, electrical, and instrumentation systems that ultimately will form parts of the completed facility.
Much of our fabrication work is conducted for clients operating in the Northern Alberta oil sands. This remote region presents unique challenges due to its extreme weather conditions and limited workforce. To overcome these challenges, URS builds modules at off-site fabrication plants located near urban areas where access to construction materials and a larger pool of qualified workers is more readily available. The modules are then transported across hundreds of miles and assembled at the project site.
