London, UK (13 December 2001) "- AMEC's operations in North America have been awarded a number of significant new projects with the US Department of Defense.

The US Department of Defense has announced that AMEC's Earth & Environmental operations (formerly Ogden Environmental) has been selected to provide environmental engineering, professional, technical and remediation services for the Air National Guard. The Department announced that the contract has a total potential value of up to US$598 million over ten years. AMEC will provide cost reimbursable services for the Air National Guard at pre-agreed rates and terms for selected projects throughout the United States.

The new services contract closely follows AMEC's selection by the Department of Defense to extend its provision of construction management and support services at the Pentagon building following the terrorist attacks of September 11. AMEC's Construction Management division had previously completed renovations to Wedge 1 of the Pentagon and is currently providing emergency repair and restoration of the impacted sections. Specific contract details have not been disclosed.

AMEC's businesses in the United States have long-term relationships with branches of the US military, providing ongoing environmental protection and other engineering-based services. The Company's ongoing services include its work assisting the US Navy with the assessment, planning and clean ups of environmental contamination from various sources at Pearl Harbour and other military sites.
