  7. 7. 1 For BP’s Amsterdam Terminal in The Netherlands, we are “Jacobs’ technical competency and level of professionalism providing EPCM services for their Theseus project—an effort are excellent. Their participation added a lot of value to to expand the throughput capacity of the largest BP terminal our project.” in Europe by more than 50 percent, further strengthening the terminal as a strategic link in BP’s European fuel products supply Waleed Shammari, Project Engineer, and distribution network. The project includes safely constructing Saudi Aramco Oil Company a new combined jetty capable of handling sea ships and barges Saudi Arabia simultaneously all on a very tight schedule and while minimizing disruption to ongoing terminal operations. 2 Our scope for the ExxonMobil Creep Projects included preliminary design, detailed design, procurement, and construction management at the Antwerp refinery in Belgium. Working in an integrated approach with ExxonMobil personnel, 2 the team’s proactive safety efforts resulted in more than 125,000 work hours with zero incidents. The projects were completed on schedule and 10 percent under the final approved total installed cost. The higher than foreseen increase in capacity has the potential of increasing yearly revenues for ExxonMobil considerably. 3 The Irving Oil refinery in St. John, New Brunswick, is the largest in Canada, producing over 300,000 barrels of finished energy products per day. We have provided ongoing maintenance, small capital project, and turnaround services to Irving Oil since 1991. Performance Centered Maintenance is a new initiative with Irving 3 Oil that is redefining contract maintenance in Canada, effectively integrating our two firms and creating a strategic partnership to increase reliability and drive efficiencies. 4 Work continues at the Motiva Port Arthur Refinery Expansion project in southeast Texas, including this gas turbine generator recently set in the Power Station 4 unit. We’re working in joint venture as the prime engineering, procurement, and construction contractor for the project, which will increase the refinery’s throughput by 12 million gallons of diesel and jet fuel per day.

The scheme won the top award in the 2008 ICE Robert Stephenson Awards for project excellence. 2 3 In a design-build project for Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise, we modified two toll plazas on the Florida’s Turnpike to create open road tolling (ORT) lanes that allow drivers with SunPass transponders to pass through the plazas without slowing down. The entire project development and construction was completed in seven months at the Bird Road and Homestead toll plazas, easing congestion while improving safety and customer service at these busy locations. 4 We are helping Sound Transit on its mission to build regional transit to improve mobility for the Puget Sound. We provided 3 design services for the Beacon Hill Tunnel project, and construction management for a section of the Central Link Initial Segment. We were also recently awarded a contract to provide construction management services for the University Link extension connecting the Sea-Tac Airport and Downtown Seattle with the University of Washington. Sound Transit recently passed a measure to add 36 miles of light rail to its Central Link.

The site at Walpole, Massachusetts, is arguably the largest immunodiagnostic manufacturing facility in the world as a result of the completion of a $110 million expansion program. We worked as an integrated team with Siemens to effectively expand the facility 2 to beyond 500,000 square feet. Using state-of-the-art process and engineering solutions, we were able to complete the facility three months ahead of schedule. 3 We provided engineering, procurement, and modular services for Genentech’s new Lucentis© facility in Singapore. Our modular approach accelerated the schedule by six months and mitigated the impact of a shortage of skilled craft labor. 4 Our 10-year relationship with Boehringer Ingelheim (BI) continues with full EPCM services for the S5 Production Expansion in Petersburg, Virginia.

The new plant will confirm POWEO Group’s positioning on the open energy market and secure their production. 4 Wind tunnel testing of race vehicles has been shown to provide a significant competitive advantage by duplicating aerodynamic conditions seen on the track in the controlled environment of a wind tunnel test cell. With our CFD model, we can run 3 simulations of actual customer vehicles, on actual tracks under actual environmental and competitive conditions. This removes the guesswork and makes sure the design will work as planned before the facility is constructed, thereby reducing customer risk.

Robert J. Zimmer, President, University of Chicago Argonne National Laboratories 2 At the Argonne National Laboratory in Argonne, Illinois, we continue to support the U.S. Department of Energy mission to advance the energy security of the United States. We are 2 integral to the planning for a new $95 million Energy Sciences Building (ESB) to replace aging research facilities. The new ESB will physically and intellectually co-locate existing Argonne scientists from multiple disciplines, giving them the 21st-century laboratory facilities they need to stay at the forefront of energy science research. 3 The National Ignition Facility (NIF), Livermore, California, is preparing for its grand opening in 2009. This also marks our over 12 years of support to NIF, now as it transitions to a national user facility. This year, NIF set world records for laser performance with the completion of its two 96-beam laser 3 bays. Work continues today in the target chamber area as an increasing number of beams are being aligned to the target. 4 To help meet global future energy needs, fusion research seeks to harness the nuclear energy provided by the fusion of light atoms. Our support of the €10 billion international ITER Fusion Reactor Project in Cadarache, France, uses expertise from our offices in Glasgow, Scotland, and Paris and Pertuis in France. We are providing preliminary architectural and engineering services to help develop the ITER facility buildings and site infrastructure. First Plasma for ITER is targeted for 2018.

Our safety plan addressed concerns for wildlife, extreme winds, and an evacuation plan due to the nearby volcano that was active during our field work. We completed the project 12.5 percent under the approved final TIC and ahead of 2 schedule. Our project team worked collaboratively with our client on innovative approaches resulting in client-approved value engineering savings of $1.75 million. 3 In helping to restore the legendary harbor at New Bedford, Massachusetts, we delivered more than $6.6 million in client- approved cost savings to date to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers New England District. We achieved this savings by avoiding unnecessary capital expenditures and implementing process improvements that enhance production. 4 At the Dounreay nuclear plant on the northern coast of Scotland, 3 we’re helping Dounreay Site Restoration Limited (part of the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority) to isolate a historic licensed Intermediate-Level Waste disposal facility from the surrounding bedrock as part of the country’s largest nuclear clean-up and demolition project.

  31. 31. FINANCIAL PERSPECTIVES “We believe the company is one of the best operators in the business and should benefit from positive macro trends in certain end markets over the next several years, despite the uncertainty in current markets.” Richard S. Paget, CFA, Morgan Joseph November 3, 2008 “Jacobs has three key attributes that tend to separate it from its E&C peers. The first is their ability to keep a firm lid on costs. The second is Jacobs’ ability to find good and relatively inexpensive acquisitions that help to enhance their overall revenue and earnings growth. Third and finally, we think investors have to worry much less about cost overruns when they analyze whether to buy Jacobs’ shares. Jacobs backlog is over 90% cost reimbursable and has been that way for some time. Its contract mix should consequently keep the company out of trouble.” Andy Kaplowitz, Barclays Capital November 5, 2008 “We continue to view Jacobs as among the best positioned for long-term growth in the E&C industry based upon the company’s market position and operating strengths.” John B.
