Bechtel will provide project management services over the course of the project starting with the front-end engineering design phase to ensure the quality, safe, and timely construction of the project.
“Bechtel’s contribution to the mega-petrochemical complex will be strategic, as Bechtel benefits from extensive experience and is a leader in the construction of petrochemical plants all around the world,” said Dr. Mohammed Yousef Al-Mulla, vice chairman and CEO of QAPCO.
“For more than 70 years we have partnered with customers, contractors, and suppliers in the region to safely deliver quality industrial and infrastructure facilities. This award allows us to continue that legacy and deliver a world-class facility for QP-QAPCO,” said Jack Futcher, president of Bechtel’s Oil, Gas and Chemicals business unit. “We are looking forward to working with QP-QAPCO to achieve the vision of making the Al Sejeel Petrochemical Complex a major contributor to the Qatari economy.”
The Al Sejeel Petrochemical Complex in Ras Laffan will include an ethylene cracker with the feedstock coming from natural gas projects located in the north of Qatar. It will substantially add to the economic growth of the country and will produce ethylene, high-density polyethylene, linear low-density polyethylene, polypropylene, and butadiene. The complex will be operational in 2018.
Bechtel is a leader in the execution of petrochemical projects using traditional feedstock processes as well as nontraditional processes for chemical production from natural gas and coal. Bechtel has built or managed signature petrochemical projects for Borouge in the United Arab Emirates and for CNOOC and Shell in China.

We stand apart for our ability to get the job done right—no matter how big, how complex, or how remote. Bechtel operates through five global business units that specialize in civil infrastructure; power generation, communications, and transmission; mining and metals; oil, gas, and chemicals; and government services.
