For more than 30 years, Bechtel has been a worldwide leader in chemical, petrochemical, and LNG plant construction. In today’s highly competitive market, the company’s experience with a broad range of technologies and optimized plant designs sets it apart.
Bechtel-built facilities encompass virtually every process technology available. This expertise—coupled with our own proprietary technologies and strategic alliances with process licensors and vendors—makes Bechtel uniquely qualified to deliver optimum performance and low installed costs on both new construction and upgrades.
Bechtel has built refining and chemical projects, including grassroots refineries and refinery expansions and modernizations. Other achievements include gas processing plants, major oil and gas field developments, and about a third of the world’s gas liquefaction capacity—more than any other contractor. The company has built tens of thousands of kilometers of pipeline, enough to circle the earth twice. Bechtel also has set the pace for extraction and upgrading of oil from the vast oil sands of northern Alberta, Canada.
Bechtel’s affiliate, IPSI LLC is one of the most recognized sources of patented cryogenic technology for high ethane and liquid petroleum gas (LPG) recovery requiring reduced horsepower, and therefore reduced investment.
