BP has chosen Jacobs Engineering Group to provide engineering and procurement services, as well as engineering assistance during construction, commissioning and startup, for a major shutdown of the fluid catalytic cracker (FCC) at its Rotterdam refinery in The Netherlands.

The contract value was not disclosed.

A Jacobs-BP program task force in Leiden, The Netherlands and Mumbai, India are executing the shutdown as part of an ongoing program portfolio, supported by a site-based team, officials said.

The 400,000 bpd Rotterdam refining facility, which is Europe's second largest, is a large part of BP's production capacity.

Jacobs is currently executing a multi-year program of micro, mid-sized and large projects at the refinery, it said.

For the FCC shutdown, Jacobs' scope of work involves replacement of the end-of-life power recovery train and regenerator ballistic separator and cyclones.

“We have a successful collaboration with BP at the Rotterdam refinery and we are enthusiastic to now include the FCCU shutdown in our current portfolio of work,” said Jacobs vice president Robert Matha.
