Bechtel Selected for Oil Production Facility Expansion Project in Kazakhstan

HOUSTON, Texas - October 27, 2014

Award Continues Company’s Successful Record of Project Delivery in the Region

Bechtel has been awarded a contract to provide engineering, procurement, and construction services to build four crude-oil storage tanks at the TengizChevroil oil production facility in Tengiz, Kazakhstan. The company also will modernize the fire and gas detection systems across the entire crude tank farm. TengizChevroil is a joint venture of Chevron, ExxonMobil, KazMunayGas, and LukArco.
“The Bechtel team will apply extensive technical knowledge and more than 30 years’ worth of experience working in Kazakhstan to deliver new tank storage capacity to the Tengiz facility on a short schedule,” said Jack Futcher, president of Bechtel’s Oil, Gas & Chemicals business unit. “We look forward to continuing our work with TengizChevroil and the people of Kazakhstan as they develop important energy resources.”
The project will add to the existing facility 500,000 barrels of tank storage, export pumps, interconnecting pipe, switching manifolds, a monitoring station, associated facilities, and supporting infrastructure. 
Bechtel is the global leader in the oil and gas industry. The company has been supporting oil production in Kazakhstan since the 1990s. Bechtel helped develop the Tengiz and Korolev oil fields, built several oil and gas facilities at Tengiz, and constructed artificial islands with associated port facilities in the Caspian Sea off the coast of Bautino.
