got contracts from Saudi Aramco to use Jacobs' proprietary Superclaus technology for 13 sulfur recovery units.

Terms weren't disclosed, but Pasadena, Calif.-based Jacobs said it is doing the work at three Saudi Aramco locations in Saudi Arabia. The Kursaniyah site is adding three SRUs with a capacity of 900 tons per day each, while the Shedgum and Uthmaniyah locations are revamping five 550-tpd units. These 13 units will process more than 8,200 tons of sulfur per day.

The Superclaus units produce molten elemental sulfur by recovering sulfur from acid gas feed streams generated by high- and low-pressure regeneration facilities. The additions and upgrades allow Saudi Aramco to satisfy environmental regulations that require a sulfur recovery level of at least 98.7%.

In making the announcement, Jacobs Group Vice President Andy Kremer stated, "We are delighted to receive these new contracts, which underscore the high level of confidence we have earned from Saudi Aramco. We are proud of what we've accomplished together and we look forward to continuing to support their long-term growth. Receiving these project awards also advances our corporate objective to expand our presence in Saudi Arabia."

On Tuesday, shares of Jacobs rose 44 cents to $64.80.
