NANA WorelyParsons: New Name, New Logo, New Opportunities

NANA/Colt Engineering Becomes NANA WorleyParsons


NANA/Colt Engineering announced today they are changing their name to NANA WorleyParsons, effective immediately.

“The name change reflects the power of the NANA WorleyParsons partnership,” said Allan Dolynny, NANA WorleyParsons president. “NANA and WorleyParsons have a history of proven success in Alaska. Through the name change, we wanted to let the Alaska industries know that they can leverage that track record of stability and success when doing business with us.  It highlights the evolution we are making from an engineering and design company to a full project delivery organization.”

NANA WorleyParsons employs over 500 project managers, engineers, designers, and support personnel, as well as one of the largest fire and gas detection and suppression engineering teams in Alaska. About thirty percent of the NANA WorleyParsons staff works on the North Slope in client field operations facilities providing plant engineering services. The remaining staff is located at offices in Anchorage and Kenai.

With more than 32,000 employees, international firm WorleyParsons provides the longtime Alaska-based company with access to worldwide capabilities and resources in oil and gas, energy and mining industries.

“Through our partnership, we are able to expand the scope of NANA WorleyParsons expertise,” said Helvi Sandvik, NANA Development Corporation president. “There will be unique emerging opportunities in the new economy. Our partnership with WorleyParsons will better position us to capture those opportunities.”

Despite the new name, many aspects of the company will remain the same. Like their predecessor NANA/Colt, NANA WorleyParsons will continue in their unwavering commitment to providing a safe and healthy work environment for their employees, clients and contractor personnel. Through a stellar comprehensive safety program and active participation by all staff members, NANA WorleyParsons will continue to foster the culture of immediate reporting and an open door policy regarding observations and incidents.

NANA WorleyParsons, a limited liability corporation, is a jointly owned through a 50/50 partnership between Alaska-based NANA Development Corporation and Australia-based WorleyParsons LTD.
