Jacobs to convert Canadian refinery

Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. has announced today that its Canadian subsidiary has received a major environmental project from Petro-Canada as part of the Refinery Conversion programme at Petro-Canada’s refinery near Edmonton, Alberta.
The Refinery Conversion programme is Petro-Canada’s project to convert the refinery so they can receive bitumen feedstock from its oil sands properties rather than relying on conventional light crudes. Officials estimate the total installed cost of the environmental project at USD 150 million. Work begins immediately on the front-end design for the facility and is expected to continue into full detailed engineering by the summer of 2003. Jacobs will provide engineering and procurement services on a new sulphur complex employing Jacobs’s own SUPERCLAUS(R) sulphur removal technology.
