Jacobs wins contract from BP for refinery

18 April 2012

Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (JEC) was awarded a contract from BP Raffinaderij Rotterdam B.V. to provide engineering and procurement services, as well as engineering assistance during construction, commissioning and startup for a major shutdown of the fluid catalytic cracker unit (FCCU) at the Rotterdam Refinery in The Netherlands.

The 400,000 bpd Rotterdam refining facility, which is Europe's second largest, is an important part of BP's production capacity. Jacobs is currently executing a multi-year program of micro, mid-sized and large projects at the refinery. For the FCCU shutdown, Jacobs' scope of work involves replacement of the end-of-life power recovery train and regenerator ballistic separator and cyclones.
