Jacobs increases profile in the KSA with Expertise Contracting MOU

June 13/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Jacobs and Expertise Contracting Company Limited have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to offer plant maintenance and turnaround solutions to key clients in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as per Hydrocarbonprocessing.

With increased cost pressures on operators in the region, Jacobs and Expertises complementary capabilities provide alternate maintenance and turnaround execution models and innovative solutions to reduce costs and maximize facility up-time. 

Expanding their complete engineering, EPCM, and PMC footprint in the region, Jacobs brings global best practices in maintenance, turnarounds, reliability, and asset management to the KSA, developed through more than 60 years of providing complete solutions to top-tier global clients. 

"This partnership reflects our commitment to provide innovative end-to-end services to our clients in Saudi Arabia," said Jacobs Senior Vice President and General Manager David Zelinski. "With cultures aligned on safety and long-term customer satisfaction, Jacobs and Expertise are ready to lead existing and new clients in the transformation of maintenance and turnarounds delivery in the region."

Founded in 2004 and based in Al Jubail, Expertise Contracting is one of Saudi Arabias leading and fastest growing industrial support solutions providers. With 4,000 craft personnel and a state-of-the-art, 3,000-piece equipment fleet, Expertise delivers comprehensive maintenance, turnaround, and industrial solutions in Al Jubail and across the region. 

"Our partnership with Jacobs aligns with our aspirations to serve the industry in a broader and more comprehensive way," said Expertise President Fares S. Al Shammari. "It transforms Jacobs and Expertise, combining global knowledge, experience and exemplary resources in line with Saudi Arabias Vision 2030 to enrich local content and promote knowledge transfer."

Jacobs and Expertise will combine their experience across multiple industrial sectors including upstream and downstream oil and gas, petrochemicals, specialty chemicals, mining and minerals, power, water, aerospace and advanced infrastructure.

As MRC wrote before, in December 2017, Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. was awarded a contract by Canada Kuwait Petrochemical Corporation (CKPC) to provide front-end engineering design (FEED) services for a proposed greenfield, integrated propane dehydrogenation and polypropylene facility located in Sturgeon County, Alberta, Canada.
