Intero Integrity Services has acquired The Sniffers, a longstanding service provider to the oil & gas industry specialised in emission monitoring and pipeline integrity services.
The Sniffers, founded in 1991 and headquartered in Belgium, offers emission reduction services such as LDAR and tank emission measurements, energy saving projects for flare- and steam-losses and underground pipeline integrity services. Through 750 projects every year, the 90 specialists of The Sniffers offers services to a variety of oil and gas companies around the world.
Rienk de Vries, Intero’s CEO, says: ‘This acquisition strengthens our business and is a further step in developing our environmental and sustainability goals and enhancing our presence in global key industry sectors. Their experience and credentials, together with our own, will open new possibilities in providing additional services to our current and new customers.’
Bart Wauterickx, CEO of The Sniffers, adds: ‘Intero Integrity Services provides The Sniffers with an extensive global network and access to many new customers. Our team is pleased to join strengths with Intero Integrity Services and to continue our journey to growth. Our emission reduction expertise and our pipeline integrity services can now be brought to more customers around the world. The Sniffers will help them realise their environmental and sustainability ambition. Climate change conferences like COP25 and sustainability objectives provide a very positive business outlook for The Sniffers. This acquisition will accelerate our global growth opportunities.’
The synergies between both companies for integrity and industrial services are promising. The services of The Sniffers will be added to Intero’s current inspection and industrial services portfolio.
