Petrochemicals

Successfully executed complex petrochemical projects for more than 60 years

Bechtel is one of a few companies to construct integrated petrochemical facilities that begin with basic feedstock and produce finished polymer and other end-products. We have proven history in designing and building plants that produce high-quality, high-demand products such as ethylene, polyethylene, polypropylene, butylenes, polyester and PET, and polyvinyl chloride.

In addition to processes using traditional feedstock, we have expertise in non-traditional processes for chemical production from such sources as natural gas and coal. We provide a full range of services, from front-end design and optimization to construction and commissioning.

Bechtel has extensive experience with process design packages as well as technology from multiple licensors for polyethylene, polypropylene, the vinyl chain, and other products.
