Jacobs receives contract from Methanex

PASADENA, US: Jacobs Engineering Group Inc was awarded a contract from Methanex Corporation, the world’s largest methanol supplier to major international markets, to provide engineering, procurement and construction services for a methanol production facility in Louisiana. Officials estimate the construction value to be $550 million.

Jacobs is already executing site-specific engineering and construction management for the 225-acre location in Geismar, La. from its offices in Baton Rouge, with support for the disassembly from its Santiago, Chile office. The plant is expected to be operational the second half of 2014.

“The US Gulf Coast is a prime location for this facility, especially since demand for methanol is expected to grow in the coming years. We are pleased Methanex selected Jacobs to be a part of this project,” said Mike Autrey, Vice President, Jacobs Group.
