The acquisition marks an expansion in key strategic markets including Europe, the US, Canada, the Middle East and India. The company will have greater global reach, with leading market positions in the energy, chemical and resources sectors.

 “We now have the ability to service our customers better through a broader geographic base and further diversified capabilities” Wood continued. “We plan to embrace the heritage of both WorleyParsons and Jacobs ECR while looking firmly ahead to what promises to be an exciting future as one entity.”

Chris Ashton, Chief Operating Officer also spoke of the news: “Together we become a global leader in the hydrocarbons upstream and downstream, chemicals, and mining, minerals & metals sectors. This means we can accelerate delivery of our corporate strategy and continue to focus on supporting our customers through the global energy transition. Sustainable power generation and renewable energy remains a priority for us.”

The merging of these two companies has created exciting changes within Advisian, the global advisory and consulting arm of Worley, as well. Downstream & Market Services as well as Sulphur & Process Technology have joined Advisian’s other global service lines including; Front-End Hydrocarbons, Advisory, Environment, Power & Transport, Advisian Digital and INTECSEA.
