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 office in Santiago, Chile, the company said.

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,” said Jacobs vice president Mike Autrey.

“We are very pleased Methanex selected Jacobs to be a part of this project.”
