As president of Bechtel’s Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) operations, David Welch boasts experience on some of the region’s most notable projects. Bechtel’s historic portfolio includes Hamad International Airport in Qatar and Jubail Industrial City in Saudi Arabia. A Bechtel-led consortium is currently working on a new terminal at Oman’s Muscat International Airport. Due to be handed over later this year, the structure was commissioned as part of a $1.8bn (OMR693m) upgrade of the sultanate’s main airport. The contractor is also working on Aluminium Bahrain’s Line 6 project.
