Bechtel in Australia
Australia is an important part of Bechtel’s history and future.
For more than 60 years, Bechtel has worked to deliver projects in every Australian state and territory across a portfolio spanning mines, minerals processing facilities, LNG installations, refineries, chemical plants, power stations, procurement services, and telecommunications infrastructure.
These projects have taken place in urban, rural and remote areas and many have been Australian or industry firsts in relation to size, scale, quality, and impact.
As well as local projects, Australians have also been working on Bechtel projects around the world – from Iceland to the Middle East, to northern Canada, Asia and South America – helping Bechtel be a welcome part of the communities where we operate.
Australia’s governments and businesses have bold, exciting projects for the decade ahead and Bechtel looks forward to continuing being a valued partner in those plans.
In June 2022, our operations across Australia launched the first Reconciliation Action Plan in a formal commitment to expand access and opportunity for First Nations people across our Australian projects and operations. As part of the launch, we were honored to reveal art work by Gladstone First Nations artist Jarrod Beezley recognizing the foundation and growth of Bechtel’s work across the nation. Based on the core pillars of relationships, respect and opportunities, reconciliation action plans provide tangible and substantive benefits for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, increasing economic equity and supporting First Nations self-determination.
