Technip Aims for Diversfication with Stone & Webster Acquisition

French oil and gas industry services provider Technip announced Tuesday that it was acquiring the process technologies function of Stone & Webster, along with associated oil and gas engineering capabilities, which is currently owned by The Shaw Group for $285 million (EUR 225 million).

The business operates from five main locations, and has a particularly strong presence in the US, the UK and India.
 
Technip said that the deal will enable it to substantially enhance its position as a technology provider to the refining and petrochemicals industries, as well as diversifying further its onshore/offshore segment – adding revenues based on the supply of technology.
 
"The acquisition of these world-class downstream technologies and high-quality engineering resources fits perfectly with Technip's strategy to differentiate itself through technology," said Technip Chairman and CEO Thierry Pilenko in a statement.
