India is home to one of the most important hubs in Bechtel’s global engineering network. Since opening in 1994, our New Delhi office has helped design major projects worldwide, including power plants, refineries, liquefied natural gas processing plants, and aluminum smelters. The office also supports activities of Bechtel’s procurement, construction, and information technology groups.
Bechtel has performed work on a number of major projects in India, including the huge Jamnagar refining complex on the northwestern coast, the Dabhol power plant on the Maharashtra coast, and the KG D6 gas development project in the Bay of Bengal.
Delivering quality and value to our customers has always been Bechtel’s priority, but our commitment also extends to improving the standard of living and quality of life of the communities where we do business. We work with employees and communities to improve the civic, economic, educational, and social environment. Read about our efforts with Engineers Without Borders in Sirohi.

Colleagues in New Delhi volunteer with GeoHazards International (GHI), a California-based non-profit organization, in a pilot project to improve earthquake safety in Gurgaon schools. The project includes creating basic awareness of earthquake safety among the staff and students of the selected school, identifying and fixing falling hazards in and around the school buildings, and preparation and testing of an earthquake preparedness plan for the school.
