Jacobs Wins Overseas Contracts

By Deborah Crowe Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. announced a trio of contracts overseas, including a $406 million consulting and project management contract with Qatar Railways Co. for a planned $36 billion metro project in Qatar’s capital city of Doha.

The Pasadena company will provide similar services to Methanex Corp. concerning the relocation of an idle methanol facility in Chile to Geismar, La. The project is expected to cost about $550 million, but Jacob’s share was not disclosed.

In addition, Jacobs signed a five-year agreement with Shell Global Solutions International B.V. to provide services to Shell assets in Europe and potentially later in the Middle East and Africa. The value of that contract was not disclosed.
