Turner & Townsend has expanded in the oil and gas sector with the acquisition of US-based consultant Larkspur Associates


The 20-strong Colorado-based firm – which has been bought for an undisclosed sum – specialises in estimating services in the oil and gas, chemicals, power and minerals industries.

It has worked on projects in the US, Canada, Mexico, South America, Australia and Europe.

The combined company will trade as Turner & Townsend Larkspur.

Vincent Clancy (pictured), chief executive of Turner & Townsend, said: “We work with many of the biggest players in the mining, oil, and gas sectors who will benefit from this added expertise.

“We’ve seen impressive growth in North America and have been building our teams in both the US and Canada as part of a successful strategy of serving global clients locally.”
