Jacobs to upgrade SABIC’s olefins 4 plant in Netherlands

PASADENA, US: Jacobs Engineering Group was awarded a contract from Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) to provide engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCM) services to support the upgrade of an olefins 4 plant at SABIC’s petrochemical production complex in Geleen, The Netherlands. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2013. The project involves numerous modifications to the existing Olefins 4 naphtha cracker, which are expected to result in a significant increase of energy efficiency as well as increased ethylene production capacity.

“The SABIC team looks forward to work with Jacobs and extend our successful business relation of many years. This is a very important project for the future of the Geleen site in general and a significant improvement in the sustainability performance and competitiveness of the Olefins 4 cracker in particular,” said Jacques Slabbers, Director, Manufacturing Services Europe, SABIC.
