WorleyParsons Limited is a large Australian provider of professional services to the energy, resource, and complex process industries.

The company has a market capitalisation greater than A$6 billion, and makes up about 0.55% of the S&P/ASX 200 index.

In January 2007, WorleyParsons acquired 100% of SEA Engineering, and on 7 February 2007, WorleyParsons acquired the privately-held Colt Companies based in Calgary, Alberta for A$1.13 billion (US$880 million) to gain increased access to Canada's oil sands industry. Randy Karren leads WorleyParsons Canada as its Managing Director, reporting to WorleyParsons CEO John Grill. Bill Hall is second in command of WorleyParsons, his title is Director of Mega Projects and he also reports to Grill directly.

In 2007, WorleyParsons' Canadian division was named one of Canada's Top 100 Employers, as published in Maclean's magazine.

Later in 2007, WorleyParsons acquired North Sydney-based Patterson Britton and Partners (PBP) and Brisbane-based John Wilson and Partners (JWP). The two companies work in the water and environmental services market in Australia, particularly in the coastal and marine, water resources and wastewater, environmental, civil and structural and power markets.
