Building one third of the global LNG capacity—more than any other contractor

Bechtel is a leader in the LNG industry.  Over the years, we have built 46 trains producing roughly 132 million metric tons per year. This distinctive track record covers 9 countries and 18 customers to deliver about 30 percent of the world’s LNG capacity.

Recently, we have constructed an industry-leading 15 LNG production trains for five customers, in  five years. These customers are now able to provide about 66 million tonnes of LNG to the energy market each year, or enough energy to power more than 85 million homes.

“Bechtel’s LNG team is building on a proven track record of delivering world-class projects that help our customers bring an important energy source to the global economy,” said Darren Mort, Bechtel’s LNG general manager. “The milestones our teams have accomplished in the past four years have been extraordinary. Our milestones are a testament to what the industry can accomplish with innovative approaches to technical challenges, and collaboration between owners, contractors, suppliers and local communities.”

Building on more than four decades of successful delivery of LNG plants across the globe, we leverage our technology positions to deliver sustainable benefits to our customers. Our capabilities with multiple technologies such as the Optimized Cascade® LNG process, IPSMR®, DMR and APCI provide flexible solutions to meet the needs of a changing market. Our longtime relationship with ConocoPhillips and the Optimized Cascade® LNG process will continue to serve our customers and baseload LNG market requirements. Our experience with Chart focuses on the application of their IPSMR® liquefaction technology for onshore and near-shore LNG solutions.

Bechtel has designed and built LNG facilities in Australia, Africa, and the Americas, delivering solutions for large-scale and mid-scale construction, complex logistics in remote areas, global supply needs, and extensive capacity building in local communities.

We also have a dedicated LNG Technology Center to support design improvements and execution efficiency.
