Lorneville achieves milestone FCCU project on Irving Oil’s Operation Wolverine


Saint John, NB – November 18, 2022

With the successful completion of Irving Oil’s Saint John refinery’s eight-week fall turnaround project – Operation Wolverine –  we are proud to have achieved a new company milestone. The work executed by the Lorneville team during this event marks our fifth Fluidized Catalytic Cracking Unit “Head Off” project in the past six years, and places us in a small peer group of contractors specializing in this scope of work for Canadian refinery clients. 

We are extremely proud that each of these projects have been completed with zero recordable injuries and we want to take this opportunity to thank our trades partners, subcontractors, and Irving Oil for their role in our success. Good work everyone, time for a well-deserved rest!
