Methanex Corp., Vancouver, has let a contract to Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. to provide engineering, procurement, and construction services in its move of a methanol plant from Chile to Louisiana (OGJ Online, Feb. 7, 2012).

The company has decided to proceed with relocation of the idle 1-million-tonne/year plant to Geismar, La., and has begun dismantling it. Jacobs also has the contract for site-specific engineering and construction management at the 225-acre site in Geismar.

Methanex estimates cost of the project at $550 million. Operations are to start by the end of 2014.
