Superior Energy Services Acquires Duffy & McGovern
Superior Energy Services has acquired Duffy & McGovern Accommodations Services Limited for $47 million in cash.
Duffy & McGovern is a global provider of offshore accommodation rentals headquartered in Aberdeen, Scotland. It operates in most major deep water oil and gas territories with major operations in Europe/Africa, the Americas and South East Asia. Duffy & McGovern has one of the world's largest fleets of offshore cabins available for hire, lease or sale, with a current working fleet of approximately 260 buildings, each certified for deep water projects by the U.S. Coast Guard, DNV or Lloyds specifications. The acquisition complements Superior's existing accommodations subsidiary, HB Rentals, which offers accommodations and accessories to oil and gas companies in Oklahoma, Texas, the Rocky Mountains, Gulf of Mexico and Trinidad.
Terence Hall, Superior's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "This acquisition gives us immediate exposure to new rental markets around the world, and further broadens our international footprint. We will utilize capital, our experience in the accommodations business and our diverse service offerings to help Duffy & McGovern realize its growth potential, while leveraging their relationships and established global operations to expand our reach for other rental products and well intervention services."
The purchase price and any subsequent capital spending related to Duffy & McGovern's operations are not included in the Company's recently announced 2007 capital expenditure budget of $362 million.
