FLUOR EXECUTIVE DEFERRED COMPENSATION PROGRAM THIS INSTRUMENT, executed and made effective as of May 1, 1995 by FLUOR CORPORATION, a Delaware corporation, evidences an amendment and restatement of the terms of the Fluor Executive Deferred Compensation Program (formerly known as the Fluor Corporation and Subsidiaries Executive Deferred Compensation Program) adopted for the benefit of certain key employees of Fluor Corporation and its subsidiaries. WITNESSETH: WHEREAS, the Company has heretofore maintained three separate deferred compensation programs for its key employees, this Plan which covered deferrals of incentive compensation, the Fluor Corporation and Subsidiaries Executive Deferred Salary Program (the "Deferred Salary Program") which covered the deferral of salary and other related amounts and the Fluor Excess Benefit Plan ("Excess Benefit Plan") which provides deferrals to compensate for benefits which would otherwise be lost to highly compensated employees as a result of the contribution and benefit limitations imposed by ERISA; and WHEREAS, the Company now desires to combine all of the three foregoing unfunded deferred compensation programs for its key employees into a single program by (a) combining the Deferred Salary Program (including, without limitation, the excess 401(k) accounts previously maintained as a part of this program) with and into this Plan thereby merging all the accounts previously maintained under that Deferred Salary Program with and into this Plan and (b) by transferring the key employee accruals previously maintained under the Excess Benefit Plan from the Excess Benefit Plan into this Plan; and WHEREAS, the Company now desires, in addition to consolidating all of the key employee deferred compensation programs into this Plan to amend and restate the terms and conditions of the Plan; NOW, THEREFORE, the Company hereby declares the current terms and conditions of the Fluor Executive Deferred Compensation Program (formerly known as the Fluor Corporation and Subsidiaries Executive Deferred Compensation Program) to be, as of May 1, 1995, as follows: ARTICLE I THE PLAN 1.1.

ARTICLE VI MAINTENANCE OF ACCOUNTS 6.1 DEFERRAL ACCOUNTS. The Company shall maintain one or more of the following separate deferral accounts, as applicable, for Eligible Employees: (1). a Deferred 14 Incentive Award Account to which shall be credited all amounts of Incentive Awards which have been deferred by such Eligible Employee pursuant to the provisions of Section 4.2(b) hereof; (2) a Pre-Effective Date Deferral Account which shall include all undistributed amounts relating to Incentive Awards as to which a deferral election had been made prior to the Effective Date, but not including deferred amounts of Incentive Awards for Fiscal Years ending on or before October 31, 1985; and (3) a Pre-1986 Deferral Account which shall include all undistributed amounts relating to Incentive Awards for Fiscal Years ending on or before October 31, 1985; (4) a Pre- Effective Date Deferred Salary Account to which shall be credited the balance as of the Effective Date of the amount standing to the credit of such Eligible Employee under the Prior Plan, reduced by the amount attributable to the Excess 401(k) Account maintained under such Prior Plan; and (5) a Deferred Salary Account to which shall be credited all amounts of Salary deferred on and after the Effective Date and all amounts credited such Eligible Employee pursuant to Section 5.2 hereof. 6.2 EXCESS BENEFIT ACCRUAL ACCOUNTS. The Company shall maintain the following separate accrual accounts, as applicable, for Eligible Employees: (1) a Pre-Effective Date Excess Benefit Accrual Account to which shall be credited as of the Effective Date all amounts then standing to the credit of such Eligible Employees in the Fluor Excess Benefit Plan, and in the Excess 401(k) Account of the Prior Plan; and (2) an Excess Benefit Accrual Account to which shall be credited all amounts accruing for the benefit of such Eligible Employee pursuant to Section 5.1 hereof. 15 6.3 ADJUSTMENTS. Each account of a Participant established pursuant to Sections 6.1 and 6.2 hereof shall be adjusted monthly to reflect any gains and/or losses thereon (the "Adjustment") in accordance with the provisions of Section 7.1 hereof. ARTICLE VII CREDITING OPTIONS 7.1 CREDITING OPTIONS. The Company has selected the crediting options described in Schedule A any of which may be changed, modified or deleted, or additional investment options may be added, from time to time by the Committee (the "Crediting Options"), provided however, that (a) the Five Year T-Bill Option will remain available for Pre-Effective Date Deferral Accounts, Pre-Effective Date Deferred Salary Accounts and Pre-Effective Date Excess Benefit Accrual Accounts and, until the end of the 1995 fiscal year, for Salary Deferrals put into place prior to the Effective Date; and (b) the Fluor Average Interest Factor option shall always remain available for Pre-1986 Deferral Accounts. At the time that an Eligible Employee first becomes a Participant, the Participant shall allocate deferrals among the Crediting Options that will be used as a measure of the investment performance of the contents of each of his Deferral and Accrual Accounts on a form provided by the Committee. In making this designation, the Participant may specify that all or any 10% multiple of each of his Deferral and Accrual Accounts be deemed to be invested in one or more of the Crediting Options. Each 16 Participant will be able to reallocate the Crediting Options for each of his Deferral and Accrual Accounts once every six months in 10% multiples on a form provided by the Committee. Said reallocation will be effective as of the first day of the month following the month in which the form is received by the Committee. Until a Participant delivers a new Crediting Options form to the Committee, his prior Crediting Options shall control. If a Participant fails to select a Crediting Option for deferrals or accruals made after the Effective Date he shall be deemed to have elected the Money Market Option. The Company shall use the Participant's Crediting Option designations as the basis for calculating the Adjustment component of each Deferral and Accrual Account. If a Participant changes his or her Crediting Option designations, then such change shall supersede the previous designation effective the first business day of the month following the month the change is made. The Company shall begin crediting the Participant's Deferral Accounts with the amount deferred by the Participant on the last day of the month in which the Salary or Incentive Award would have otherwise been paid. The monthly Adjustment shall be determined as follows: As of the last day of each month in which any amount remains credited to any Deferral Account or Accrual Account of a Participant, each portion of such accounts deemed invested in a particular crediting option shall either be credited or debited with an amount equal to that determined by multiplying the balance of such portion of such account as of the last day of the preceding month by the Return Rate for that month for the applicable Investment Option. As to the applicable amount distributed, the Company shall cease crediting or debiting Adjustments to the 17 Participant's Deferral and/or Accrual Accounts on the last day of the month of the applicable distribution event set forth in Articles VIII and IX (the "Valuation Date"). Allocation of investment selections shall be made among the Crediting Options. A Participant shall have absolutely no ownership interest in any Crediting Option. The Company shall be the sole owner of (if any) funds invested in any such Investment Option, as well as all amounts accounted for in the Deferral and Accrual Accounts, all of which shall at all times be subject to the claims of the Company's creditors. A Participant shall be entitled to payment of an amount equal to the amount in each of his Deferral and Accrual Accounts in accordance with Articles VIII and IX hereof. ARTICLE VIII ACCOUNT DISTRIBUTIONS 8.1 NO DEFERRAL PERIOD SPECIFIED. With respect to any Accrual Account and those portions of any Deferral Account (including, any Adjustments related thereto) as to which no specific deferral period has been selected by the Participant at the time of deferral: (a). The lump sum payment or the first installment will be paid on or before December 31 of the year of termination; provided however, that the Company may in its sole discretion elect to defer payment thereof until January of the succeeding year. 18 (b).

(c). Payment in cash in one lump sum or in annual installments will be at the sole discretion of the Participant's corporate employer. The number of installment payments will not exceed twenty. (d). In the event of the death of a Participant prior to commencement of any payments hereunder, payments will be made to his Beneficiary in accordance with the foregoing provisions. In the event of the death of a Participant after commencement of benefit payments in installments but prior to payment of his entire entitlement, payment may be made to his Beneficiary in one lump sum or by continuation of installments at the discretion of the Participant's corporate employer. In the event installments continue to the Beneficiary, they will continue to be subject to Adjustment under Section 7.1 hereof. 8.2 SPECIFIED DEFERRAL PERIOD. With respect to those portions of any Deferral Account (including any Adjustments related thereto) as to which a specified deferral period has been selected by a Participant at the time of deferral: 19 (a). Entitlement to payment will occur upon the earlier of the (i) Participant's Termination of Service or (ii) upon expiration of the specific deferral period. (b). All payments will be made in a lump sum in cash unless the Participant, at the time of deferral, designates that the deferred amount be paid in a specified number (not to exceed twenty) of annual installments. (c). The lump sum payment or the first installment payment will be paid on or before December 31 of the year of entitlement; provided however, that the Company may in its sole discretion elect to defer payment thereof until January of the succeeding year. (d). If a Participant's entitlement is paid in installments, the second installment payment will be paid during January of the year following the year in which the first installment was paid and all remaining installments will be paid annually in the month of January.

In the event of the death of a Participant after commencement of benefit payments in installments but prior to payment of his entire entitlement, payment may be made to his Beneficiary in one lump sum or by 20 continuation of the installments all at the discretion of the Participant's corporate employer. If a Participant has received his entire entitlement under one or more, but less than all of his deferral elections, and dies prior to commencement of payments under one or more unpaid deferral elections he shall be considered to have died prior to the commencement of any payments hereunder. In the event installments continue to the Beneficiary, they will continue to be subject to Adjustment pursuant to Section 7.1 hereof until distributed. ARTICLE IX OTHER DISTRIBUTION EVENTS 9.1 CHANGE OF CONTROL. Notwithstanding any other Section hereof, if a Participant's employment with the Company or its subsidiaries terminates for any reason other than death, within the two-year period beginning on the date that a Change of Control of the Company occurs, then the Company shall pay to the Participant within the first fifteen (15) days of the month following such termination a lump sum distribution of all of his Deferral Accounts and Accrual Accounts. If the Participant dies after termination of employment but before payment of any amount under this Section, then such amount shall be paid to the Beneficiary within the first fifteen (15) days of the month following the Participant's death. 21 9.2 UNFORESEEABLE EMERGENCY.

Distributions in the event of an Unforeseeable Emergency may be made by and with the approval of the Committee upon written request by a Participant. (b).

The circumstances that will constitute an unforeseeable emergency will depend upon the facts of each case, but, in any event, any distribution under this Section shall not exceed the amount required by the Participant to resolve the hardship after (i) reimbursement or compensation through insurance or otherwise, (ii) obtaining liquidation of the Participant's assets, to the extent such liquidation would not itself cause a severe financial hardship, or (iii) suspension of deferrals under the Plan. 22 9.3 WITHDRAWALS. A Participant may elect by filing with the Company a form specified by the Committee, to receive an amount equal to ninety percent of his Deferral Accounts and Accrual Accounts at any time prior to his Termination of Service.

ARTICLE X MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS 10.1 PARTICIPANT RIGHTS IN THE UNFUNDED PLAN.
