ExxonMobil awards Jacobs construction services work at Hawkins EOR project

Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (JEC) announced today that it received a contract from ExxonMobil Production Company (XOM) to provide construction services for ExxonMobil's enhanced oil and gas recovery project at the Hawkins field in Wood County, Texas, about 100 miles east of Dallas.

Jacobs will provide engineering, procurement and the direct hire of construction services. 

New facilities will be installed at the Hawkins field to recover and reinject nitrogen and other gases from the field's natural gas production. This will enable more oil and gas to be recovered from the reservoirs and extend the life of this mature field. 

Discovered in 1940 by ExxonMobil, the Hawkins field was one of the largest fields in the state of Texas at the time.

Construction is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2010. At its peak, the ExxonMobil project expects to employ a construction workforce of about 300 people, a number of which are expected to come from the local area. The project should provide significant direct and indirect economic benefits to the North East region of Texas. Project start-up is anticipated in late 2011.
