Additional Information

Fugro acquires the survey and geotechnical activities of the French Thales Geosolutions active in the oil and gas industries. It is thereby possible to reduce the marketing and administration costs. 10 % of the existing jobs for the off-shore activities (4050 employees) of both companies will be suppressed.
