Murphy Pipelines has acquired a 50 per cent stake in the Pipe & Civil Group to deliver large scale pipeline projects in Australia.
The new company Murphy Pipe and Civil is operational from March 2011 and is well placed to capitalise on Australia’s pipeline market expansion.
“Australia is facing a strong demand for resources-based construction and major infrastructure. The pipeline industry alone is undergoing a multi-billion dollar expansion with the development of the coal seam gas projects,” says Murphy Pipe and Civil.
“Murphy’s large resources and Pipe and Civil’s strong track record in the local market will create a solid platform for Murphy Pipe and Civil to offer premium construction services in Australia,” the company says.
