Foster Wheeler Acquires Specialist Upstream Consultancy Ingen Ideas
Foster Wheeler AG announced that it has acquired Ingen Ideas (“Ingen”), a privately held upstream consultancy company located in Aberdeen, UK.
Ingen specializes in field development and project decision support, focused on the evaluation and implementation of oil and gas field developments covering greenfield and brownfield assets. Ingen’s expertise includes field development, process engineering including subsea and topsides design, flow assurance, enhanced oil and gas recovery, carbon management and petroleum engineering.
Ingen will become part of Foster Wheeler’s EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) Upstream operations, which already has operations in Woking, Reading, Glasgow and Hull, all in the UK.
“The acquisition of Ingen is part of our stated strategy to grow our upstream capabilities, particularly for offshore, and to extend our offering to our clients to encompass the full oil and gas value chain,” said Kent Masters, Chief Executive Officer, Foster Wheeler AG. “The ability to provide high quality, high value-added consultancy services to our clients at a very early phase of the development of an oil and gas asset is a key factor in developing and extending long-term relationships with our clients, and also strengthens our position for future phases of these projects.”
