IRVING, Texas & CALGARY, Alberta--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) announced today that it has placed the final module for the Suncor Energy Oil Sands Limited Partnership’s East Tank Farm Development project near Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada.

As part of its engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction scope, Fluor managed module fabrication and shipment of the modules, all of which were fabricated by Fluor’s Supreme Modular Fabrication Inc.
