Jacobs provides mechanical maintenance and turnaround services at Scotford.

Shell Canada Limited has granted Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. a five-year contract renewal to provide mechanical maintenance and turnaround services at its Scotford Complex in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Jacobs reported Tuesday.

“Jacobs has been safely delivering mechanical maintenance and turnaround solutions to Shell at their Scotford site for three and a half decades,” Stephen Hillier, Jacobs’ construction, maintenance and turnarounds senior vice president and general manager, said in a written statement. “As we begin this five-year renewal contract, we will continue to innovate and support the successful operations at Scotford and help provide employment opportunities to the Fort Saskatchewan community.”

According to Shell, the Scotford Complex comprises a bitumen upgrader, oil refinery, chemicals plant and carbon capture and storage facility. Last expanded in 2011, the upgrader processes up to 255,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day of diluted bitumen to produce synthetic crude oil and other products, Shell stated. The company runs up to 100,000 barrels per day of synthetic crude through the adjacent refinery to produce gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, propane and butane. The Scotford Chemicals Plant manufactures styrene monomer and ethylene glycol with byproducts from the refinery.

Jacobs stated that it employs approximately 300 full-time personnel at the Scotford site.
