ARTICLE II. GENERAL
This Plan shall be known as the "Fluor Corporation 2000 Restricted Stock Plan
for Non-Employee Directors".
The purpose of the Plan is to advance the interests of the Company and its
stockholders by affording to Eligible Directors of the Company an opportunity to
acquire or increase their proprietary interest in the Company by the grant to
such directors of Awards under the terms set forth herein. By encouraging non-
employee directors to become owners of Company shares, the Company seeks to
increase their incentive for enhancing stockholder value and to motivate, retain
and attract those highly competent individuals upon whose judgment, initiative,
leadership and continued efforts the success of the Company in large measure
depends. The Plan also permits Shares to be issuable upon vesting or
satisfaction of restricted stock and restricted unit
awards that were assumed by the Company in connection with the distribution of
the Company's common stock (the "Distribution") to the stockholders of Massey
Energy Company, which prior to the distribution was known as Fluor Corporation
2.3 Effective Date
The Plan shall become effective upon its approval by Old Fluor, as sole
stockholder of the Company.
Subject to adjustment pursuant to the provisions of Section 8.1 hereof, the
aggregate number of shares of Stock which may be issued as Awards shall not
exceed 120,000. Any such shares may be either authorized and unissued shares or
shares issued and thereafter acquired by the Company.
2.5 Awards Granted under Plan
For purposes of Section 2.4, the aggregate number of shares of Stock issued
under this Plan at any time shall equal only the number of shares actually
issued pursuant to all Awards and shall not count any shares returned to the
Company upon cancellation, expiration or forfeiture of an Award or delivered
(either actually or by attestation) in payment or satisfaction of the tax
obligation of an Award.
ARTICLE III. PARTICIPANTS

ARTICLE V. RESTRICTED STOCK AWARDS
5.1 Awards under the Plan
The Committee may provide for a one-time Restricted Stock Award to any Eligible
Director which shall be granted on a date determined by the Committee, in its
sole discretion, in connection with such Eligible Director first being appointed
or elected to the Board. The Committee shall grant to each Eligible Director
that is a member of the Board during all or any portion of each calendar year
during the term of the Plan a Restricted Stock Award, which shall
be granted on a date determined by the Committee, in its sole discretion. The

set by the Committee but shall not exceed 1,500 and the number of shares of
Stock subject to an annual Restricted Stock Award shall be set by the Committee

An Assumed Award is a restricted stock grant, restricted stock unit or other
equity-based arrangement that was granted by Old Fluor to its non-employee
directors for their service as such and assumed by the Company in connection
with the Distribution, as adjusted or amended pursuant to the terms thereof.
Assumed Awards may be settled with Stock authorized and issued under this Plan.
Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in this Plan and except as
provided in this sentence, the terms of Assumed Awards shall be subject to the
terms and conditions set forth in the grant agreement and/or other document(s)
evidencing such Award and, to the extent provided therein, to terms equivalent

provided, however, that all Assumed Awards shall be administered by the
Committee, which shall have the power and authority provided for in Section 4 of
5.2 Restricted Stock Agreement
Each Award granted hereunder must be granted within ten years from the effective
date of the Plan. The Awardee shall be entitled to receive the Stock subject to
such Award only if the Company and the Awardee, within the time period specified
by the Committee, enter into a written Restricted Stock Agreement dated as of
the date of the Award, which Agreement shall set forth such terms and conditions
as may be determined by the Committee consistent with the Plan.

that, prior to the lapse of the restrictions or forfeiture of the
shares, certificates evidencing such shares be issued in his name and
delivered to him, and each such certificate shall bear the following

any Subsidiary; or
