DALLAS, April 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Jacobs (JEC) today announced that it has successfully closed the previously announced sale of its Energy, Chemicals and Resources (ECR) segment to WorleyParsons Limited (WOR.AX).

Scottish marine salvage group Ardent is adapting the tanksit used to refloat the Costa Concordia, the cruise ship wrecked off the Italian coast in 2012, to decommission North Sea oil platforms. It is one of several companies trying new ideas to win business in the market for dismantling disused oil platforms. In Britain's ageing oil fields alone, the opportunities could be worth up to 17 billion pounds before 2025, according to industry body Oil and Gas UK.
The Jacobs Engineering Group has announced plans to sell its energy, chemicals and resources unit to Australia-based WorleyParsons Limited for $3.3 billion. Dallas-based Jacobs says the company will focus on its other lines of businesses, including aerospace, technology, environmental and nuclear, plus infrastructure and advanced facilities. Jacobs spokeswoman Lorrie Paul Crum said Tuesday that the unit being sold is based in Houston, where the operation has about 3,000 employees.
The Australian company, which makes most of its money from designing, building, operating and maintaining refineries, offshore rigs and other giant pieces of equipment for the oil and gas industry, will more or less double in size as a result of the $3.3 billion deal announced Monday. The amount WorleyParsons is paying pretty much matches its own A$4.7 billion ($3.3 billion) market capitalization on the eve of the deal.
MELBOURNE/NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. firm Jacobs Engineering Group Inc (JEC.N) has agreed to sell its energy, chemicals and resources business to WorleyParsons (WOR.AX) for $3.3 billion, in a deal that will double the size of the Australian engineering services firm. The deal continues a shake-up of the engineering services industry, following Jacobs' $3.3 billion (2.5 billion pounds) purchase of rival CH2M Hill Cos Ltd last year and the 2.2 billion pound takeover of Amec Foster Wheeler by UK oilfield services firm John Wood Group. It comes as WorleyParsons emerges from a three-year downturn following the oil price crash, and positions it to tap growth in the refining and petrochemical sectors, with countries like India building massive new plants.
