John Gordon added: “Our global vision is to establish large operating centres in Canada, Australasia, Europe and the Middle East, and this significant investment will underpin that strategy. This deal also provides a springboard for exploring the many opportunities coming down the line in Canada’s nascent LNG exporting industry, and we believe our core oil, gas and refining specialisms can add value to operators and contractors in that space.”
