HOUSTON (ICIS)--Jacobs has won a contract to work on three polyethylene (PE) trains planned by Sadara Chemical in Saudi Arabia, the US-based petrochemical engineering firm said on Tuesday.

Jacobs' contract includes engineering, procurement and construction management for the project at Jubail Industrial City. It did not disclose the plant’s proposed capacity or financial details.

Sadara, a joint venture between US-based Dow Chemical and Saudi Arabia’s Saudi Aramco, is building a chemicals complex with 26 manufacturing units, including linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) and low density polyethylene (LDPE).

The first production units are expected to come on line in the second half of 2015, with all the site’s units planned to be up and running in 2016.
