About ABT


ABT officially commenced operations in July 2003. ABT is a registered Trinidadian company that is based in Tropical Plaza, Point-a-Pierre, Trinidad. ABT is a 50/50 joint venture between the Asset & Risk Engineering Group (ARE) and Bechtel International.

The company was conceptualized in response to the Government of Trinidad and Tobago’s request to perform a portion of the Atlantic LNG (ALNG) Train 4 engineering and design locally. Both ARE and Bechtel regard this as a valuable opportunity to provide services to the engineering/construction market that were previously not available in Trinidad and Tobago and position partner companies for business opportunities in the Caribbean. This would also provide a platform for the development of national employees, equipping them with new capabilities to serve the region in good stead on a sustainable basis.

ABT started as a small office with 15-20 employees. Since then ABT has expanded its range of services, staff, capabilities and experience in all engineering design disciplines. In addition to this we have included procurement, project management, project controls, quality assurance, health and safety, document control, information technology and other support services to meet the growing demands of the industry and the region.

The founding partners of ABT, ARE and Bechtel, are united by their firm beliefs and common values. Furthermore, Bechtel’s strengths in project management, engineering, procurement and construction are complemented by ARE’s competencies in plant management as well as asset and risk management services.
