Petrofac Purchases Metering Specialist

Petrofac has acquired Stephen Gillespie Consultants Limited for an initial cash consideration of $3.2 million. A further consideration of up to $2.1 million will be payable in cash over two years, subject to achieving certain agreed performance targets. 

SGC, established in 1988, has some 38 employees located at its office in Grangemouth, Scotland. Initially established to provide software consultancy to flow metering control system manufacturers, the company is now focused on design and manufacture enabling it to act as a systems integrator, providing metering systems which utilize virtual flow computer technology. 

SGC will enhance Petrofac's service offering within Petrofac Offshore Engineering & Operations. The acquisition of SGC will enable the group to combine its existing metering consultancy expertise and 'PARIS' allocation software with the SGC product portfolio, resulting in the ability to deliver turnkey metering solutions to the international oil & gas industry for both brownfield and greenfield projects.
