Transaction in Own Shares

On 21 February 2012,  AMEC plc ("the Company")  announced that it intended  to 
complete a £400 million share buyback programme within the next twelve months.

Today the Company  announces that  it has  purchased 200,000  of its  ordinary 
shares of 50p each at 1137.92 pence per share through Bank of America  Merrill 
Lynch,  all  of  which  are  to  be  cancelled.  This  purchase  equates   to 
approximately 0.06 per cent of  AMEC's current issued share capital  excluding 
Treasury shares prior to this purchase.

The highest purchase  price paid was  1154.00 pence per  share and the  lowest 
purchase price paid was 1131.00 pence per share.

Following this  change  AMEC's  total  issued  share  capital  is  317,187,449 
ordinary shares, of which 6,349,195 are registered as Treasury Shares, leaving
a balance of 310,838,254 shares with voting rights.

Cumulative  purchases  to   date  under  the   buyback  programme  amount   to 
approximately £249.02 million.

Going forward, it is the Company's intention that the significant majority  of 
the shares purchased under this programme will be cancelled.
