Bechtel’s Impact Report

Energy Transmission and Storage

Helping customers meet energy supply and demand

Having access to reliable and affordable energy is an expectation for most communities around the world, enabling economies to grow and new products and industries to develop.

As our customers continue to expand access to energy resources, they need to connect that energy to the grid, which is often hundreds or even thousands of miles from the communities they serve. The ability to transmit and store energy is critical to meet supply and demand needs globally.

Meeting peak energy demand with renewables remains a key challenge for the industry. Our customers must have a mix of renewable and transitional energy to maintain reliability for all their markets, whether they are communities or industrial consumers.


We help customers deliver energy while also protecting the environment.  Bechtel can provide integrated engineering, procurement, and construction or program management services for transmission lines, substations, and distribution facilities. These services extend to independent transmission lines and substations as well as those associated with new power generation facilities.  

We have designed or commissioned more than 100 transmission substations and delivered more than 930 miles (1,500 kilometers) of transmission lines.

Storage solutions for LNG liquefaction, regasification, hydrocarbon storage, industrial water, and petrochemical markets are critical to the reliability of energy access.  Storage solutions include:


  • Ambient storage tanks 
  • Spheres and pressure vessels 
  • Low temperature and cryogenic tanks 
  • LNG tanks 

Terminal solutions

  • Bulk liquid terminal 
  • LNG regasification terminals 
  • LNG peak shaving and transportation facilities 

Execution that matters

From concept to our time-tested execution experience in engineering, procurement, fabrication, and construction, we offer solutions as a partner to our customers by solving complex problems and simplifying the buying and operation of storage.

Project execution - using a direct-hire craft workforce - maximizes value and minimizes risk to our customers by providing a single point of accountability. This self-perform model allows us to optimize designs and deliver proprietary erection processes to reduce material and field hours, translating into lower cost, fewer emissions, shorter time to market, and greater certainty of outcome.

Our experienced team specializes in project management, design, welding, fabrication, and construction―always focused on safety and the quality of delivery. Bechtel maintains global reach with strategically located offices in Houston, London, and Shanghai.
