SNC-Lavalin in the Middle East

We are a major contributor to the development of the region with over 300 projects executed in the last 10 years worth close to $12 billion. We safely deliver quality engineering, procurement and construction solutions for projects of any size, location or complexity. 

We also have long-standing relationships with the leading national and international companies across the region. For example, in Saudi Arabia we are continuing our 24-year relationship with Saudi Aramco by providing general engineering services for their oil and gas facilities. In Qatar, we’ve completed a number of major contracts over the past several years at Pearl GTL, the world’s largest GTL project.  We’re also proud to be a leader in the region’s metallurgy sector, having successfully completed the DUBAL aluminum smelter expansion in Dubai and, more recently, the EMAL aluminum smelter project in Abu Dhabi, one of the largest in the world.


We have over 10,000 employees in offices and on work sites in Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain and Iraq, with engineering centers in Abu Dhabi and Doha. In addition to being a significant employer in the region, we are committed to the economic development of the communities in which we work. Through robust education, training and empowerment programs, we help build local capacity and a skilled workforce. 

Our strategy for the region is customer focused. We believe that success is built on safety leadership, an agile and responsive approach to project execution, and operational excellence. We draw on considerable expertise already in the region and combine this expertise with extensive global end-to-end experience that spans all four of our key sectors.
