Jacobs wins major Jubail chemical plant contracts

Riyadh, March 17, 2011

Jacobs Engineering has won two contracts from the Jubail Chemical Industrial Company (Jana) to provide technical and project management services.

The two awards are for Jana's existing epichlorohydrin plant expansion and a new epichlorohydrin plant in Saudi Arabia.

Jana is a wholly owned subsidiary of Nama Chemicals (Nama).

Officials did not disclose the contract value.

Under the agreement, Jacobs is providing technical and project management services for both inside battery limits (ISBL) and outside battery limits (OSBL). The ISBL services involve debottlenecking of their existing epichlorohydrin plant to achieve increased capacity, and the OSBL services cover all utilities and the tankage area.

Jacobs' scope also includes cost estimates preparation and the project management support for Jana's new epichlorohydrin plant, to be built at the same site in Jubail. This expansion is intended to increase the epoxy resins production capacity to 240 ktpa at the Jubail site.

'The expansion projects are expected to provide high quality epoxy resins and intermediates to the markets we serve and add value to the kingdom's economy, including employment,' stated Nama's chief executive officer Abdulmohsen H. Al-Ogaili.

'This award is the result of Jacobs' and Jana's teams close collaboration over the past three years, and we welcome the opportunity to support Jana to expand its existing Jubail facilities,' added Jacobs Group vice president Allyn Taylor.
