Bechtel in the Middle East

Bechtel has worked in the region, specifically Saudi Arabia, for more than 70 years developing megaprojects from oil and gas facilities to airports and critical infrastructure. 

Our experience includes assisting the Royal Commission of Jubail and Yanbu in the development and expansion of Jubail and Ras Al Khair Industrial cities. Bechtel has worked on significant infrastructure projects in Saudi Arabia, including King Fahd and King Khalid airports, and industrial plants, such as the Ras Al Khair aluminum smelter. Currently, Bechtel is working on Lines 1 and 2 of the Riyadh Metro project and assisting the KSA government in setting up Mashroat, a National Project Management Office (NPMO), to streamline  processes and systems across government entities.

Bechtel's work and global experience continue to support Africa to build transformative and resilient projects, with sustainability at the core. Our approach includes building the capacity of local workers, businesses, and communities and having a plan to transition local-content programs toward economic development.
