Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, and London, United Kingdom— Today, Hatch and g3baxi partnership (g3) announced they have entered into a definitive agreement under which Hatch will acquire g3—an employee-owned oil and gas engineering company that was founded in the UK in 2007. g3 will retain its distinct brand, working under the Hatch group of companies, and embracing its culture, manifesto, and business ethos. The transaction, which has now closed, will enhance the skills and expertise of both companies and enable the delivery of unprecedented service within the energy market over the short, medium, and long term.

“The g3 team has developed a fantastic business centered on safety, innovation, and providing true value for their clients,” Robert Francki, Hatch’s global managing director for Energy said. “Together, we can accelerate our growth in this market. Today is another very positive marker in Hatch’s growth in oil and gas and our vision for the future as we seek to offer sustainable, market-leading engineering excellence for our clients around the world.”

g3 has built a strong and growing business over the last decade throughout the UK and the Middle East. The company has extensive knowledge and understanding of upstream facilities, pipelines, and terminals, working as both a specialist consultancy or on large, multidiscipline projects. “g3’s proven track record for delivering bespoke engineering solutions in the field of upstream hydrocarbon extraction, in combination with Hatch’s multi-sector engineering and delivery capabilities in the distribution and utilization of hydrocarbons, allows us to provide complete ‘well-to-wheel’ solutions for operators in the oil and gas industry,” said Sanjiv Save, managing director, Oil and Gas at Hatch.

“Today we embark on a new phase in our journey as g3—a company known for its expert conceptual ability, responsiveness, and proven engineering and technical skills. To have the opportunity to join Hatch, a company whose corporate culture shares many of our same values, is an exciting next step in our history. We’ll now be able to leverage our skills and embark upon larger, more complex projects in the future,” added Mike Goodman, managing director, g3.
