Tetra Tech Inc. [NASDAQ: TTEK] said Jan. 4 that it has agreed to acquire Parkland Pipeline, an Alberta-based company that serves the oil and gas industry in Western Canada. The company specializes in the technical support, engineering support, and construction of pipelines and oilfield facilities. Parkland has about 900 staff and approximately C$140 million in annual revenue.
“Like other previous acquisitions, Parkland enables Tetra Tech to provide additional core water, environmental and engineering work to the pipeline industry while better serving these customers,” said Tetra Tech’s chairman and CEO Dan Batrack. “We will be able to offer pipeline clients a cross-border, full-service solution. Parkland significantly expands our services to the North American energy market, and has consistently produced double digit operating margins.”
Parkland will be joining Tetra Tech’s Remediation and Construction Management segment. The transaction is expected to be completed in Tetra Tech’s fiscal 2013 second quarter, pending approval from the Competition Bureau of Canada. Tetra Tech plans to reflect Parkland’s net revenue contribution and earnings accretion in its 2013 guidance after the transaction closes. The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
