Shell awards Jacobs mechanical maintenance deal for Canada operations

Jacobs Engineering Group said it received a five-year contract from Shell to provide main mechanical maintenance services to its Canadian operations.

Those operations include the Scotford upgrader and manufacturing facilities near Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta; the Corunna refinery near Sarnia, Ontario; and the Albian Jackpine and Muskeg River mines near Fort McMurray, Alberta.

Officials did not disclose the contract value.

Under the terms of the contract, Jacobs is performing mechanical maintenance, including small capital project construction and turnaround activities, the company said.

Jacobs has worked with Shell for over 75 years and currently provides services for it on a global basis in more than 40 locations around the world.

In Canada, Jacobs has been providing industrial services for Shell at Sarnia since 1952, Scotford since 1984 and Albian since 2001. Combined, there are more than 700 maintenance personnel on these sites, Jacobs said.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Shell in support of its journey to best-in-class facility performance,” said Jacobs vice president Chip Mitchell.

“Recognizing the importance of safety and effective maintenance and turnarounds on its business, we are working together to continuously deliver value-added service.

“We have a long and successful history with Shell, a relationship that we hope to continue for many years to come.”
