Jacobs Awarded Contract Extension By Saudi Aramco

Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (NYSE:JEC) announced today it received an amendment from Saudi Aramco for its general engineering services (GES) contract.

While officials did not disclose the contract value, the five-year extension builds on the framework of the original contract signed in 2011.
