Saudi Aramco Total Refining and Petrochemical Company (Satorp) has awarded Jacobs Engineering Group with a two-year contract renewal to provide general engineering services in the Kingdom. The services will be provided by Jacobs’ Jacobs Zate subsidiary, which comprises Jacobs Zamel and Turbag Consulting Engineers.
Satorp is a joint venture refinery set-up by Saudi Aramco and French energy firm Total. The JV is based in the Jubail region of Saudi Arabia and has the capacity to process 400,000 barrels per day (bpd) of Arabian heavy crude oil.
As per the terms of the contract, Jacobs will continue to provide services ranging from basic engineering to Front End Engineering Design (FEED), detailed design, procurement through to construction management, commissioning support, and handover of small- to medium-sized capital investments to sustain the operations of the Satorp Jubail II refinery.
“Satorp’s continued trust in our proven capabilities as a world-class engineering and construction management company is a testament of our commitment as a valued partner in the region,” said David Zelinski, senior VP and GM for Jacobs Energy, Chemicals and Resources (EMEA).
The services will be delivered by a team from Jacobs Zate in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia, said the US company in a statement. Jacobs has been operating in Saudi Arabia for more than 40 years and is said to have developed strong partnerships with Saudi Aramco, Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (Sabic) and Saudi Arabian Mining Company (Ma’aden).
“This contract renewal reaffirms our strong relationship with Satorp and our long-standing position in the kingdom,” Zelinski added.
