WorleyParsons is the leading provider of professional services to the energy, resource and complex process industries in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ). The region continues to grow significantly across all customer sectors, with employee numbers rising to over 7,700 – an increase of some 50% on last year.
Operations in Australia/New Zealand
The Hydrocarbons and Minerals & Metals sectors remain particularly active, with a number of new major developments commencing as others move into construction. A significant milestone occurred when Fortescue Metals Group’s Pilbara Iron Ore and Infrastructure Project shipped its first cargo of iron ore to China – a milestone that we are proud to have helped achieve.
The delivery of long term sustaining capital projects – through WorleyParsons’ Improve – continues to be a key focus. Significant expansion was achieved across a number of industries and locations with particular progress being made in both the Minerals & Metals and Power sectors. The ongoing growth of relationships with industry leaders through Improve continues to underscore our leading position in this region.
The acquisition of specialist water and wastewater consulting companies, Patterson Britton and John Wilson and Partners, enhances our capability in this important area. Water is anticipated to be a key growth area regionally and internationally, and these acquisitions ensure that our Infrastructure & Environment group is well-positioned to meet anticipated demand.
The ANZ operation continues to play a leading role in our EcoNomics™ initiative, with numerous customers undertaking EcoNomics™ assessment and efficiency studies. In addition, strong industry support has been developed for the WorleyParsons led Advanced Solar‑Thermal (AST) initiative. Through AST, WorleyParsons and its partners are helping industries to work collectively to bring about the essential change that needs to take place in our society, and in doing so achieve the right outcomes for future generations. Work on our future coal initiative also commenced to further support this goal.
