US-based engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) and project management firm, Bechtel - led by its senior vice president and region president for Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, David Welch - has worked on some of the most high-profile construction projects in the GCC and Middle East regions.

Bechtel was the engineering, procurement, and construction management contractor for Aluminium Bahrain’s (Alba) flagship Line 6 expansion project – one of the biggest brownfield developments in the kingdom of Bahrain – which was inaugurated by Bahrain’s King HM Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa in November 2019.

Other projects taken up by the firm include the Riyadh Metro, the Jubail Industrial City, and the National Project Management, Operation, and Maintenance Organisation.

In December 2019, Bechtel re-opened its office in Saudi Arabia’s Al Khobar to meet the increasing demand for quality services in the kingdom’s oil and gas sector. Re-opening the Al Khobar office reaffirms Bechtel’s commitment to support the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 with a commitment to developing local talent.

Since 1898, Bechtel has helped customers complete more than 25,000 projects in 160 countries on all seven continents.
