On March 17, 1997 Robicon Corporation was requested, by a large Alberta based oil company, to provide a proposal to manage a turn-key, crude oil, pump station project. The oil company had identified an immediate need to expand their North Eastern Alberta Pipe Line system to allow a higher thru-put into the Hardisty, Alberta area:

• the pipe line was capacity restricted and customer demand indicated an immediate requirement to increase pipe line thru-put by 70%;

• the capacity increase was required by June 30th or earlier.
