Bechtel reopens office in Al Khobar

Bechtel, a global leader in engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), has re-opened its office in the Saudi city of Al Khobar to meet the increasing demand for quality services in the oil and gas sector both in the kingdom and the region.

Re-opening the Al Khobar office reaffirms Bechtel’s commitment to support the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 with a commitment to developing local talent to sustain long-term economic development for Saudi Arabia, said a top official.

“We are here to support our Saudi Arabian customers and partners to deliver sustainable energy & chemical products to the world,” remarked Joe Thompson, Senior VP and General Manager for Bechtel’s Downstream and Chemicals business.
“We are proud of our 76-year history here in Saudi Arabia and today, that energy and dedication to meeting the needs of our Saudi customers and the Kingdom’s objectives is just as strong,” he stated.

Bechtel’s people have engineered, managed and delivered some of Saudi Arabia’s signature projects, from Ras Tanura, the first oil refinery in 1943 to today’s major projects such as Riyadh Metro Project, The National Project Management, Operation and Maintenance Organization and the Jubail industrial city.

To enable successful outcomes for our customers, Bechtel offers a proven expertise and knowledge accumulated over more than 121 years from delivering hundreds of refineries and chemical plants, thousands of kilometers of pipeline, hundreds of onshore oil & gas facilities, tanks, terminal facilities and unmatched global LNG capacity.

A trusted engineering, construction and project management partner to industry and government, Bechtel serves a range of sectors including the infrastructure; nuclear, security and environmental; oil, gas and chemicals and mining and metals markets.

The group’s services span from initial planning and investment, through start-up and operations, said Thompson.

“Since 1898, we have helped customers complete more than 25,000 projects in 160 countries on all seven continents that have created jobs, grown economies, improved the resiliency of the world’s infrastructure, increased access to energy, resources, and vital services, and made the world a safer, cleaner place,” he added.
