Bechtel Makes World's "Top Contractors" Lists

Company Ranks Highest Among U.S.-Based Contractors

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 30, 2011) - Bechtel Corporation has once again been recognized as one of the world's top contractors by Engineering News-Record (ENR), a leading publication for the engineering and construction industry.

The company ranked 3rd on the magazine's Top 225 International Contractors list and 10th on the Top 225 Global Contractors list. The international contractors list is determined by the revenue a company generates outside of its home country; the global contractors list is based on a company's revenue worldwide. On both lists, Bechtel was the highest ranked company headquartered in the United States.

"These rankings reflect the confidence our customers have in our employees' ability to take on the complex projects anywhere in the world. With nearly 100 projects currently underway in 44 countries, Bechtel remains steadfast in its unwavering commitment to deliver quality results for our customers," said Bechtel President and Chief Operating Officer Bill Dudley.

In addition to being ranked among the top international and global contractors, Bechtel has been named ENR's top U.S. contractor for the last 13 years.
