Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. announced it has been awarded an In-Kingdom engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract for three polyethylene trains for Sadara Chemical Company (Sadara), a joint venture between Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Aramco) and The Dow Chemical Company (Dow).

Officials did not disclose the terms of the agreement.

Jacobs' scope of work for the project includes construction management, field engineering support, and management of Lump Sum Procure Build (LSPB) construction contractors, field materials management, In-Kingdom procurement services and project services support for the three polyethylene trains.

First production units are expected to come on line in the second half of 2015, with all units up and running in 2016.
