Jacobs Receives Contract From Hyundai Engineering for New Sulphur Recovery Unit

Jacobs Logo Jacobs Engineering Group today that it received a contract from Hyundai Engineering Co., Ltd. (HEC) to license and design its proprietary SUPERCLAUS(R) technology for a desulphurization unit at a new gas plant in Turkmenistan. The unit will be integral to the gas plant operated by state-owned Turkmengas, which produces, processes, and exports all gas reserves.

South Korea-based HEC will design and build the new gas plant, which is scheduled to be operational in 2012. Gas produced from this plant will be supplied to China. Turkmenistan's natural gas reserves, with estimates ranging from 4 to 14 trillion cubic meters, are the fourth largest in the world.

Jacobs introduced SUPERCLAUS(R) technology in 1985 and now has over 200 units in operation. The technology nearly eliminates sulphur from the production process, resulting in cleaner fuels with minimal gaseous emissions and lower energy consumption.

In making the announcement, Jacobs Group Vice President Robert Matha stated, "As a leader in desulphurization technology, we are proud to support HEC in providing environmentally friendly, clean fuels."
