Amec Foster Wheeler said it has acquired Scopus Group, a laser scanning, dimensional control and lean engineering company whose survey data is used to engineer piping and structural solutions for the global oil and gas industry.
Headquartered in Aberdeen, with bases in international oil and gas hubs, Scopus employs about 200 employees who provide specialist engineering services to the global oil and gas, petrochemical and nuclear industries. Scopus will continue to offer independent services to its customers while building on Amec Foster Wheeler’s extensive customer base, the company said in a statement.
“This acquisition forms part of our growth strategy by further strengthening our project delivery capability across the upstream, midstream and downstream oil and gas sectors,” said Alan Johnstone, Managing Director of Amec Foster Wheeler’s Brownfield Projects business.
He added that the enhanced lean engineering capability will allow the company to provide a low-cost solution at the late-life stage of a facility prior to decommissioning.
