Dallas/USA — Jacobs Engineering Group has received a contract from MEGlobal, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Equate Petrochemical Company to provide engineering, procurement and construction management services for a new monoethylene glycol (MEG) manufacturing facility near Freeport, Texas. “Jacobs’ chemical industry expertise and proven track record were key factors in the selection process. The completion of this complex project will help MEGlobal establish a U.S. Gulf Coast presence and expand its position in the MEG market,” said President, MEGlobal International FZE of MEGlobal Ramesh Ramachandran.
This award follows Jacobs’ delivery of the facility’s front end engineering package, which incorporates The Dow Chemical Company’s licensed process technology as well as non-process equipment and piping both inside and outside the new facility’s battery limits.
Additionally, Jacobs received a contract from ExxonMobil Chemical Company to provide engineering, design and construction management services as part of a new 650 kTa polyethylene facility to be located at the client's Beaumont polyethylene plant. Under the terms of the contract, Jacobs is delivering front end engineering, detailed design and construction management to support enabling works and installation of offsite facilities, including rail, and interconnecting piping required for the new polyethylene train. The completed facility will produce pelletized polyethylene to be used in the manufacture of plastic products.
