HOUSTON -- INTEC Engineering and WorleyParsons Sea have merged into a new entity called INTECSEA.
INTEC Engineering was acquired by WorleyParsons in April 2008. Now, the companies are combining deepwater, subsea, pipeline, and floating production capability into a single source.
INTEC's deepwater capability for subsea, pipelines, risers, and FPSOs will combine with WorleyParsons Sea's engineering for floating systems. In addition, the offshore pipeline and FPSO engineering of WorleyParsons will be added to INTECSEA.
Staffing for the new company will total 800 people.
INTECSEA will be a global business unit within the WorleyParsons Group. INTEC's Ed Smith will be CEO and Sea's Pieter Wybro will be deputy CEO.
"We are particularly excited about adding new offices to support our clients, initially in Singapore and Melbourne. Maintaining both Houston offices is an important part of our growth strategy to attract and retain the best talent in the industry," said Smith. The company's headquarters will remain at the INTEC office and subsea and pipelines engineering capacity will be added to the Sea Houston office.
