Jacobs Engineering Group on Tuesday received a contract from
Malaysian state-owned oil company Petronas to develop a basic
engineering package for three sulfur recovery units (SRUs).
The contract value was not disclosed. Officials said the
basic engineering services would be provided from Jacobs
Leiden office in The Netherlands.
For the project, Jacobs is licensing its
SUPERCLAUS technology. Jacobs introduced the
SUPERCLAUS technology in 1985, and now has over
200 licensed units in operation worldwide.
The technology offers a number of
highly-valued performance features in areas such as reliability, sulfur recovery levels,
sulfur emissions reduction and simple continuous operation,
according to the company.
Petronas new, three-train sulfur plant is part of the
refinery and petrochemical integrated development
(RAPID) project site in the state of Johor,
Through RAPID, Petronas is establishing an optimally
configured, integrated complex that focuses on production of
high, value-added petrochemicals.
This involves building a refinery to supply naphtha and to
produce gasoline and diesel that meet European clean
The petrochemical complex is designed
and developed to produce ethylene and olefins that are used in
downstream plants to produce petrochemical derivatives.
We are very pleased to work again with Petronas and to
provide our technology in support of its goals
for long-term growth, said Jacobs vice president Robert
