ABERDEEN -- Marine Subsea has acquired subsea engineering consultancy Lewis Ltd. for an undisclosed sum.
As part of the agreement, Lewis will continue to operate independently out of its base in Aberdeen. It will also retain its management team, headed by MD Drummond Lawson. Marine Subsea directors Christian Nygaard and Knut Harto will join the Lewis board.
"Lewis offers complete solutions and is among the leaders in the industry," says Christian Nygaard, MD of Marine Subsea AS. "Marine Subsea sees a significant market potential and by incorporating Lewis's intervention systems for access to the subsea wells, and in particular Lewis intervention technologies with our intervention vessels, Marine Subsea becomes a more complete provider of services to the oil and gas industry."
