 JACOBS AWARDED CONTRACT TO CONTROL
 BENZENE EMISSIONS AT SUN REFINERIES
 PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (NYSE: JEC) announced today the receipt of a multimillion dollar contract from Sun Co. (NYSE: SUN) to provide benzene emission control services at all five of Sun's refineries in the United States. The refineries are located in Marcus Hook and Philadelphia, Penn.; Toledo, Ohio; Tulsa, Okla.; and Yabucoa, Puerto Rico.
 The value of Jacobs' contract was undisclosed.
 The announcement was made by Jacobs' Group Vice President Alvin S. Rapp who said the projects follow the recent successful completion of comprehensive pollution prevention studies by Jacobs at Sun's refineries in Marcus Hook and Toledo.
 The scope of Jacobs' services at each of the refineries includes scoping evaluations and process engineering design.
 Jacobs has to date provided sampling and sampling certification of benzene waste streams in the refineries; consulted on alternative approaches to comply with federal National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) regulations (which mandate benzene reduction in refinery wastes); and prepared
cost estimates for potential compliance options at each refinery. The contract calls for Jacobs to furnish the engineering scoping services to reduce benzene emissions at all of Sun's domestic refineries and to provide detailed engineering to modify the wastewater treatment system in their Tulsa refinery.
 Jacobs Engineering Group, headquartered in Pasadena, Calif., provides single-source consulting, engineering, design, architectural, environmental and hazardous waste management, procurement, construction, construction management, contract maintenance and operations services to government and industry worldwide. Jacobs has 20 offices located throughout the United States and Ireland, with a major office in Houston.
