Jacobs Engineering Group announced today it has been awarded an In-Kingdom engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract for three polyethylene trains for Sadara Chemical Company (Sadara), a joint venture between Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Aramco) and The Dow Chemical Company (Dow).
Officials did not disclose the terms of the agreement.
Jacobs' scope of work for the project includes construction management, field engineering support, and management of Lump Sum Procure Build (LSPB) construction contractors, field materials management, In-Kingdom procurement services and project services support for the three polyethylene trains. The execution of this project is being performed by Jacobs' office in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia.
This award is part of a world scale, fully integrated chemicals complex now being built by Sadara in Jubail Industrial City in Saudi Arabia. Comprised of 26 manufacturing units, the complex will be one of the world's largest integrated chemical facilities, and the largest ever built in a single phase. First production units are expected to come on line in the second half of 2015, with all units up and running in 2016.
In making the announcement, Jacobs Group Vice President Mike Coyle stated, "We are delighted to be a part of the Sadara project. This project supports Jacobs' long-term commitment to clients in the Middle East."
