Jacobs Wins More Than $1.4B in Alberta Oil Sands Work
Jacobs Engineering Group announced that it received new contracts in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 from seven clients in the Alberta Oil Sands to support steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) and bitumen upgrading expansion projects.
Officials estimate the combined total construction value of the awarded projects at more than $1.4 billion.
Project scopes include engineering procurement and construction (EPC), front end engineering and design (FEED), fabrication and construction management (CM) on a variety of mid- and large-cap projects. The construction values on each project range in value from $15 to more than $650 million.

In making the announcement, Jacobs Group Vice President Chip Mitchell stated, "The Alberta Oil Sands are a very important component of our business. Jacobs has a strong history in the area, and we are pleased to support our clients in these initiatives."
