Australia's construction and engineering services provider Civmec Limited (the Company, together with its subsidiaries, the Group) announced Tuesday that the Company has agreed to enter into a due diligence phase for the acquisition of PT Global Industries Asia Pacific (a Technip subsidiary). The terms include a long-term collaboration agreement with Technip for services and facilities for current and future project work globally.
Technip is a world leader in project management, engineering and construction for the energy sector.
The proposed acquisition includes securing 51.9 acres (21 hectares) of strategically located waterfront land with deepwater access in Batam, Indonesia. Further development of the facility will enable the company to carry out many of its multi-disciplined capabilities including heavy engineering, modularization and pre-cast concrete works. The location and geometry of the land also make it ideal for new activities such as the potential establishment of a spoolbase for shallow and deepwater subsea pipelines.
The Company believes that the considerable opportunities in the Infrastructure and Subsea sectors as well as the long term outlook within the Oil & Gas and Mining sectors substantiates the investment in what will be a state of the art and internationally competitive facility.
Since listing in 2012, the Company has focused on the developing its risk management systems and project controls as well as applied innovation, technologically advanced and superior methodologies as part of its best practice offerings to its clients. These systems and the continual investment in our people have resulted in the ability for the Company to maximize this opportunity to secure an ideal location to take this expertise and intellectual property to international markets.
Civmec CEO, Pat Tallon said, “This is a very exciting opportunity for us to extend our multi-disciplinary operations overseas. We will be well positioned to capitalize on the significant infrastructure expenditure planned for South East Asia. The increased capacity allows Civmec to deepen our relationship with existing blue chip clients globally, as well as bringing onboard new regional clients.
“It is particularly exciting for us to have the opportunity to further strengthen our relationship with Technip, which began with our awards of projects for Shell Prelude FLNG (Floating liquefied natural gas) and Chevron’s Wheatstone Subsea Project. The proposed acquisition provides Civmec an excellent platform to grow our South East Asian business in addition to positioning ourselves in a strategic geographical location to service clients who are operating or have plans to operate in future growth regions of the world.
