PIKE LODGE DISTRICT CAMP & JACKFISH 1 TANK FARM
PROJECT OWNER: Devon Energy
PROJECT LOCATION: Southeast of Conklin, AB
PROJECT SCHEDULE: October 2013
PROJECT VALUE: $1,200,000
Pike Lodge is the second project Carmacks has undertaken for Devon Energy. The first project was in 2012 at the Jackfish 3 SAGD plant site. The Lodge was similar construction to Jackfish 3; soil stabilization of the top 300mm of subgrade throughout the site access roads and parking areas.
This project was negotiated late in the summer of 2013 and mobilization to site was conducted shortly after agreed upon. The original contract was for work on the Pike Lodge District Camp site. The work was restricted to 75% of the roads and one large parking area. The reason for the restriction of the amount of stabilization was because the underground utilities had not yet been trenched in several areas crossing the roads. The application rate on this site averaged at 25 kg/m2.
While work was in progress, Devon expanded the contract to include another site within driving distance for the equipment. This second site was the Jackfish 1 Tank Farm which is a large trucking turn around with substantially wetter conditions than at the Pike Lodge site. The application rate averaged to 30 kg/m2.
Feedback from several Devon reps is that the Jackfish 3 site is the new standard in site conditions that they are aiming to achieve on all future sites, including new access roads to well sites.
