BHP has selected Worley to offer construction services for its Jansen Potash Mine Stage 1 project in Saskatchewan, Canada.

The contract encompasses a range of responsibilities including fabrication, modularisation, and field construction programmes for the underground mine and associated facilities.

The project will utilise a modular building approach for the potash mill building, a first of its kind, with completion of the final pre-assembled unit expected by December 2024.

Field construction is set to commence in April 2024 and conclude by September 2025.

Upon completion, the Jansen project is anticipated to be one of the largest potash mines globally, aiming to meet the increasing worldwide demand for potash over the coming decade.

The mine is expected to begin operations towards the end of 2026, with an annual production capacity of 4.35mt of potash.

Worley’s scope also includes concrete, structural steel, piping, equipment installation, electrical and instrumentation work, and commissioning of the dry mill and screening areas.

The engineering service provider has partnered with the George Gordon First Nations to deliver socio-economic benefits including Indigenous cultural awareness, training and mentoring programmes.

Worley is committed to sustainability, aiming to operate with reduced greenhouse gas emissions and freshwater consumption per tonne of product, setting a new standard for potash mines in the region.

Worley Canada Construction vice-president Martin Clutterbuck said: “Fertilisers play a critical role in ensuring global food security, as their absence would impede billions of individuals from accessing vital nourishment.

“We are pleased to be able to support BHP to deliver this project using our local construction capabilities, while meeting their social value and sustainability goals.”
