Project Experience

DCS Team has successfully provided commissioning services to plan, manage and execute system turnover for major complex projects, providing a full complement of commissioning technicians to perform comprehensive testing and set up while adhering to industry standards and best practices. We have a wide variety of project experience; here are a few sample commissioning projects:

Surmont 2 SAGD $7B Project, Alberta, Canada – ConocoPhillips/Total

DCS engineers representing the owners (ConocoPhillips/Total) established a system, sub system phased turnover approach to bring the SAGC plant on 4 months early.  With the plan established the DSC team worked with the construction contractors to incorporate the approved phased system turnover into their construction schedule.

“I know we would not be close to first steam without Delta’s help.  As I look back over the last four years there are certain actions and decisions made that were game changers. Bringing you folks on to help was one of those key decisions.  Words really cannot describe my appreciation for you answering the phone and coming to work with us”.
