Engineering and Construction Jacobs Received Contracts from BP und Sabic for Projects in The Netherlands
Jacobs received contrats from BP and Sabic in The Netherlands. The project for BP includes design and conduct for major shutdown of the fluid catalic cracker unit (FCCU) in Rotterdam and for Sabic the US-company supports the upgrade of an Olefins 4 plant at the production complex in Geleen.
Pasadena, California/USA – Jacobs Engineering Group announced it was awarded a contract from BP Raffinaderij Rotterdam to provide engineering and procurement services, as well as engineering assistance during construction, commissioning and startup for a major shutdown of the fluid catalytic cracker unit (FCCU) at the Rotterdam Refinery in The Netherlands.
Officials did not disclose the contract value however they noted that the Jacobs' BP Program task force in Leiden, The Netherlands and Mumbai, India are executing the FCCU shutdown as part of an ongoing program portfolio, supported by a site-based team.
The 400,000 bpd Rotterdam refining facility, which is Europe's second largest, is an important part of BP's production capacity. Jacobs is currently executing a multi-year program of micro, mid-sized and large projects at the refinery. For the FCCU shutdown, Jacobs' scope of work involves replacement of the end-of-life power recovery train and regenerator ballistic separator and cyclones.
Upgrade for Sabic
Jacobs also announced that it was awarded a contract from Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (Sabic) to provide engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCM) services to support the upgrade of an Olefins 4 plant at Sabic's petrochemical production complex in Geleen, The Netherlands.
Officials did not disclose the contract value; however, they noted that the project is scheduled to be completed in 2013 as part of the scheduled plant turnaround. Jacobs is executing the work from its office in Meerssen, The Netherlands, which is close to the site.
The project involves numerous modifications to the existing Olefins 4 naphtha cracker, which are expected to result in a significant increase of energy efficiency as well as increased ethylene production capacity.
