(Financial Times) --
Interserve, the UK support services and construction group, is buying Willbros Middle East, the Omani oilfield services company, for $41.3m, in a move that will expand its presence in the booming Gulf oil and gas services sector.
Interserve said the acquisition will increase its service capabilities in Oman, “a key growth market” offering about $2.5bn of oil, gas and power contracts a year.
