Jacobs wins nuclear and oil sands contracts

Consultant Jacobs yesterday announced an extension to its contract with Horizon Nuclear Power in the UK, on the same day it also announced $1.4bn (£888M) worth of contracts with Alberta oil sands clients.

Jacobs’ scope of worksfor Horizon includes delivering a baseline marine ecology survey program, environmental impact assessments and further assessments for the new power station and associated infrastructure.

Jacobs has won contracts with seven clients on the Alberta oil sands for work from steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) to bitumen upgrading expansion projects. Jacobs said in a statement that due to the competitive nature of the projects and strict client confidentiality, the company was unable to provide specific details about these projects.

Rumours last week that German energy giant RWE was due to pull out of the Horizon Nuclear Power consortium were discouraged by Horizon. A spokesman said the consortium’s work was ongoing.
