“Jacobs’ strength in front end project delivery, combined with our team’s proven performance in propane dehydrogenation and polypropylene technologies, supports CKPC in the development of this complex,” said Jacobs Global Head of Petroleum and Chemicals Vinayak Pai. “Beyond this project, we look forward to working with CKPC to help them add value to Western Canada’s hydrocarbon production and to meaningfully increase local market demand for propane.”

“CKPC is looking forward to working with Jacobs for the FEED phase of this project,” said Director of CKPC Waleed Al-Bader. “Jacobs was selected after an extensive global search process, by demonstrating vast petrochemical experience, a well-qualified project team and an organizational-wide commitment to CKPC’s success.”
