Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. has been awarded a contract by Canada Kuwait Petrochemical Corporation (CKPC) to provide front-end engineering design (FEED) services for a proposed greenfield, integrated propane dehydrogenation and polypropylene facility located in Sturgeon County, Alberta, Canada.
CKPC is a joint venture of Pembina Pipeline Corporation (Pembina) of Canada and Petrochemical Industries Company of Kuwait.
“Jacobs’ strength in front-end project delivery, combined with our team’s proven performance in propane dehydrogenation and polypropylene technologies, supports CKPC in the development of this complex,” said Vinayak Pai, global head, petroleum and chemicals, Jacobs.
“Beyond this project, we look forward to working with CKPC to help them add value to Western Canada's hydrocarbon production and to meaningfully increase local market demand for propane,” added Pai.
“CKPC is looking forward to working with Jacobs for the FEED phase of this project,” said Waleed Al-Bader, director, CKPC. “Jacobs was selected after an extensive global search process, by demonstrating vast petrochemical experience, a well-qualified project team and an organisational-wide commitment to CKPC's success,” commented Al-Bader.
In execution of the FEED, Jacobs will utilise resources from multiple centres of excellence located in Calgary, Houston and Charleston, West Virginia, with a significant portion of the project scope performed in Canada. Jacobs will fully support CKPC’s vision of engaging and developing the local workforce. The project is expected to mobilise immediately.
