GE To Acquire Cameron's Reciprocating Compression Division For $550 Mln

GE Oil & Gas (GE) Monday announced agreement to acquire the reciprocating compression division of Cameron International Corp. (CAM), a Houston-based provider of flow equipment, systems and services, for about $550 million.

The acquisition expands GE's distributed gas portfolio and shale capability and services expertise, and also complements GE's Oil & Gas' existing High-Speed Reciprocating business.

"Our increased strategic focus, the buoyant oil and gas sector and our track record in providing high-quality support to customers combined with Cameron's Reciprocating Compression division will position us for accelerated growth, " said Lorenzo Simonelli, president and CEO of GE Oil & Gas.

Cameron's Reciprocating Compression division provides reciprocating compression equipment and aftermarket parts and services for oil and gas production, gas processing, gas distribution and independent power industries. In 2012, the division generated sales of approximately $355 million.

Upon closing, the reciprocating compression division will become part of GE's Oil & Gas recently formed Downstream Technology Solutions business in order to better serve the $11 billion downstream and distributed gas segments.

The acquisition is expected to close later this year subject to regulatory approval.
