(NYSE:JEC) has been awarded a 12-month contract extension by the Department of Energy (DOE) for continued safe and efficient environmental remediation efforts along the Columbia River and selected portions of the Hanford site. The DOE announced its intention to extend Jacobs' existing 10-year contract from its original October 1, 2018 end-date through September 20, 2019.

"We stay committed to the Department of Energy in delivering results that are safe and efficient."
