Jacobs Receives Contract for Sulfur Recovery Unit From Saudi Aramco

Jacobs Logo Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. announced today that it received a contract from Saudi Aramco, the state-owned oil company of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to develop a basic engineering package for four sulfur recovery units, each with an expected production capacity of 1,200 tpd.

This new, four-train sulfur plant will be part of the Wasit Gas Development Program in the Kingdom. Jacobs has designed over 350 sulfur recovery units since 1985, and they will license its proprietary EUROCLAUS(R), and sulfur degassing technology for the project. The project will be executed from Jacobs office in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Saudi Aramco's Wasit Gas Development Program will provide for the production and processing of up to 2.5 billion standard cubic feet per day of gas from the Aribiyah and Hasbah offshore non-associated sour gas fields. This investment involves building gas processing plants, two offshore gas platforms, one tie-in platform, subsea power and communication links and pipelines.

In making the announcement, Jacobs Group Vice President Robert Matha stated, "We are pleased to receive this new contract. It underscores the high level of confidence we have earned from Saudi Aramco and we look forward to continuing to support their long-term growth. This project also meets our corporate objective to continue expanding Jacobs' presence In-Kingdom."
