British engineering company Amec is eyeing a takeover bid for
US-based Foster Wheeeler, The Times reported on Wednesday,
citing anonymous sources.
The potential deal could create an overall energy services
group worth $8 billion.
The Times reported that Amec has appointed Goldman Sachs to
advise it on a potential deal.
Neither company had immediate comment, though Amec said in
August 2013 that it was considering oil and gas acquisitions.
