BP awards engineering deal for Rotterdam refinery FCC shutdown to Jacobs

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.
