HOUSTON (ICIS)--Jacobs has won a contract for work to help integrate Shell’s two refining and petrochemicals sites near Cologne, Germany, the US-based petrochemicals engineering firm said on Tuesday.

Jacobs will provide management and engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCM) services to support the project to build pipelines under the Rhine river to integrate Shell’s Godorf and Wesseling production sites.

Shell began work on the 3.8km (2.4 mile) pipeline last year. The project, which involves the construction of two tunnels under the Rhine, will cross the river twice at a sharp river bend at Godorf/Wesselling.

Jacobs, for its part, is designing and installing the infrastructure inside “the battery limits” of each refinery site to connect each facility to the tunnels, it said.

Jacob’s said the project is expected to be completed in early 2013. It did not disclose financial terms.

According to information on Shell’s website, Shell refining capacities at Godorf and Wesseling are 10m tonnes/year and 7m tonnes/year, respectively. At Wesseling, Shell also produces olefins and petrochemicals.
