Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (NYSE:JEC) announced today that it is providing front-end engineering, design, and procurement services for BP Cherry Point Refinery's Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) project in Blaine, Washington. The project, which is an extension of BP's ongoing program to introduce clean fuels that substantially reduce emissions, involved evaluating both revamp and grassroots options to determine the best solution for complying with the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) new low sulfur diesel regulations.

BP plans to invest over $75 million on new ULSD facilities at their Cherry Point Refinery with mechanical completion projected for mid-2006.

Jacobs is a leader in helping clients across the globe execute environmentally sensitive projects aimed at emissions and sulfur reduction. For North American refiners, Jacobs helps clients meet mandatory EPA regulations for ULSD by focusing on the business drivers surrounding ULSD and, based on each refiner's unique facility configuration, helping determine the lowest capital investment required to maintain a competitive position.

In making the announcement, Jacobs Group Vice President Peter Evans stated, "We are excited about this second consecutive major capital project award by BP Cherry Point and the opportunity to further expand our relationship with this refinery. Our team plans to build on the successes of the recently completed clean gasoline project."
