Under the terms of the three-year contract, Jacobs will continue to deliver EPCM services in support of the project, including the ongoing expansion of the gas gathering system, wellsite facilities and export pipelines.

“We are committed to continuing our relationship with BP through the next development phase of this world-scale gas project,” Vinayak Pai, Jacobs’ petroleum and chemicals president, said.

“Upon completion of the project, this field has the potential to produce gas for Oman for decades to come and simultaneously sets the stage for knowledge transfer and Omanization.”
