Jubail also is one of Bechtel’s most remarkable achievements—a city built from the sand up, requiring vast resources and logistical planning on an unprecedented scale.
Bechtel has managed the Jubail project, located in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, since it began in the mid-1970s. The Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu later asked the company to manage Jubail II, an $11 billion (2006-2016) expansion of the city’s industrial and residential areas.
Jubail has evolved into a major player in the global petrochemicals market, attracting top technical and business minds from 40 countries.
