A two-year contract renewal has been awarded to Jacobs Zate, a subsidiary of US giant Jacobs Engineering, for work on a petrochemical plant in Jubail Industrial City 2, Saudi Arabia.

Basic engineering, front-end engineering design (FEED), detailed design, procurement, construction management, commissioning support, and handover of small to medium-sized capital investments will help sustain the operations of the refinery, owned by SATORP – a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and France's Total Oil Company.

"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 Jacobs' energy, chemicals and resources senior vice president and general manager for Europe, Middle East, and Africa, David Zelinski.

"This contract renewal reaffirms our strong relationship with SATORP and our long-standing position in the kingdom."

Engineering giant Jacobs, which generated $15bn in revenue last year, has built up a strong presence in Saudi Arabia. It has now operated in the kingdom for more than four decades.

Across the Middle East, the engineering and construction firm has worked on the BP Khazzan Oman Gas Field, the Riyadh Metro, and the Prince Mohammed bin Abdulaziz International Airport.
