2015: A Year in Review
2015 proved to be a year of many challenges and obstacles. Through it all, Keywest Projects remains strong and true to their vision, strategy and business plan and had a successful year with the start-up of new projects, exciting events, and an unexpectedly rewarding United Way campaign.
Our commitment to developing new and strengthening current client relationships is paramount. Keywest Projects continues to increase corporate visibility and awareness within the industry by providing quality engineering services, resulting in measured growth within our Facility and Upstream Project Groups.
In May 2015, Keywest Projects celebrated the efficient and successful start-up of Phase 1 of the Bellatrix O’Chiese Nees-Ohpawganu’ck deep cut gas plant in the Alder Flats area of Alberta. Just a month later, in June 2015, Keywest Projects celebrated the successful start-up of Progress Energy’s Lily Plant Expansion.
Both the facility and upstream team successfully executed the following types of projects over 2015:
- Oil Satellite & P/L
- Gathering System
- Pipeline Modifications
- Gas Wellpad & P/L
- Plant Studies
- Gas Plant
- General Engineering and Regulatory
- Oil Battery
- Gas Pipeline
- Gas Compression
- Facility Modifications
Keywest Projects continues to build and maintain relationships with staff and clients by sharing experiences at corporate events throughout the year. Our Stampede Breakfast is open for everyone, and on average we entertain and feed upwards of 300 guests. Keywest’s annual Stampede Party and Golf Tournament are put together for our valued employees and clients to enjoy. Christmas is the season to give back as we host a classic Christmas Dinner and Party for our employees and a Kids Christmas Party for our Keywest families.
Keywest in the Community
Keywest Projects, with the help of Northridge Projects did an amazing job coming together at a time when Calgary needed it the most. With a participation rate of 53%, together we have raised $27,725.00, which includes a generous donation of $1,200.00 from IPAC Services Corp. Unexpectedly, this year’s campaign proved to be more successful showing a 13% increase in participation from the previous year! Keywest matched 100% of the dollars donated by Keywest and Northridge staff, bringing our total donation to United Way Calgary and Area $52,498.00. Thanks to the support and participation of our team, the lives of many Calgarians will be changed!
Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer
As part of Keywest Projects Give Back Program, staff sponsored Greg Crump, son of Keywest’s late Rick Crump, and helped him exceed his goal. $7,390.00 was raised, which includes Keywest’s generous dollar for dollar match.
Ovarian Cancer Walk of Hope
Last September, fellow Keywesters, friends and family supported Perry Jasson under Team Judy as he walked for the Ovarian Cancer Walk of Hope in memory of his late wife. Each year Perry and Keywest participate and support this charity to increase awareness and fund vital research for this devastating disease. For 2015, Team Judy was the No. 1 Calgary Team and Perry was the No. 1 Calgary Participant.
Vertigo Theatre productions
Keywest recently became a proud supporter of Calgary’s cultural initiative by sponsoring Vertigo Theatre productions BD&P Mystery Theatre Series. Last November, Keywest Projects employees and clients enjoyed a grand performance of The Mousetrap by Agatha Christie.
