Neste Jacobs has secured a contract with Abu Dhabi-based plastics solutions provider Borouge to provide engineering and design services for its polyethylene complex modification project in Ruwais, UAE.
Under the front end engineering and design (FEED) contract, Jacobs will provide process and plant engineering and project management services.
The contract is the third FEED project by Jacobs, as part of a Tier 1 long-term service contract signed by the companies in June 2013.
Neste Jacobs plans to manage work under the contract from its office in Abu Dhabi, and intends to complete the project by the end of the year.
Neste Jacobs CEO Jarmo Suominen said: “This contract is an important milestone in cooperation and partnership between Neste Jacobs and Borouge.
“This project is also a proof that we are generating real added values for our customers and provide high-quality services competitively in the Middle East and also globally.”
Borouge said that Jacobs’ expertise of its polyethylene process technology and production plants, and presence in the Middle East have been key factors to select the company as a FEED contractor.
Borouge is a joint venture of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and Borealis, and is one of the leading polyolefins producers in the world.
The company offers plastics solutions for pipe systems, and power and communication cables, automotive and advanced packaging applications. It has a workforce of more than 3,000 people, and serves customers in 50 countries across the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
