WorleyParsons will acquire the resources arms of US engineering firm Jacobs in a transaction valued at $4.6 billion. WorleyParsons CEO Andrew Wood says the deal, which is hoped to be completed in the first half of 2019, will create the world’s biggest provider of professional engineering services to the mining, oil and gas sectors. The transaction will see Jacobs acquire a stake of around 11 per cent in WorleyParsons, while Wood says he does not expect the deal to result in any major job losses across the two businesses.
