BP lets contract for Whiting refinery upgrades

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Apr. 16 -- BP Products North America Inc. has let two major engineering, procurement, and fabrication packages to Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. for work associated with a planned upgrade project to increase Canadian heavy crude processing at BP's 399,000 b/cd refinery in Whiting, Ind.

The $3 billion upgrade project is scheduled for completion in 2011 (OGJ Online, Oct. 26, 2006).

Jacobs' work scope for one of the packages includes licensing, design, and fabrication of sulfur recovery facilities. Jacobs will execute the licensing portion of this award from its offices in Leiden, the Netherlands, and will use its Comprimo Sulfur Solution technology. The modular fabrication portion will be executed through the company's facility in Charleston, SC.

The scope of the second package includes revamping several hydroprocessing units, which Jacobs will execute from its Houston location.
