UK & Europe

regions-europeWith 65+ years experience in the oil and gas industry, we have a strong heritage across the UK and Europe. Originally specialising in cathodic protection and construction supervision, Penspen was founded under the name ‘Spencer & Partners’ in London in 1954. In 1957, it branched out to form a separate ‘Pipeline Engineering Consultants’ practice called ‘PENCOL’. Then, in 1969, the two branches merged under the single name Penspen, an amalgamation of Pencol and Spencer & Partners.

The current Europe division combines all of these core strengths, delivering integrated engineering, project management , asset management, asset integrity and training experience across the region. With key engineering hubs in London, Newcastle and Neath, we bring global engineering experience to local project requirements across Europe.
