    Stolt Offshore has announced the acquisition of the Paris based engineering company Ingerop Litwin from the French construction group VINCI. Ingerop Litwin, which has 180 engineers and a turnover of $50 million, derives 20 per cent of its business from energy related engineering services and 80 per cent from EPIC projects in upstream, offshore and onshore engineering and in downstream petrochemical, refinery and power plant projects.
