Mexican Energy Secretary Rocio Nahle announced on Monday March 18 – the 81st anniversary the expropriation and nationalization of the nation’s oil industry – the names of the four international companies that have been invited to post tenders for the construction of the $8 billion Dos Bocas refinery in the southeastern state of Tabasco.

Those companies are: the Virginia based Bechtel-Technic engineering, procurement, construction and project management firm, a subsidiary of the Bechtel Corporation, the largest construction company in the United States; WorleyParson-Jacobs, an Australian engineering corporation that specializes in energy sector projects; French construction company Technip; and Houston’s KBR hydrocarbon engineering firm.

Nahle said that each of these corporations had been extensively vetted and had been found to engage in “best transparency and ethical practices,” as well as boasting extensive technical experience and knowhow in building refineries.

The Dos Bocas refinery is due to take at least three years to construct, with the initial $2.5 billion foundation expected to be laid later this year.
