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 1028.5082  pence  per share  through Bank  of  America 
Merrill Lynch.  All of  these shares  will  be held  as Treasury  shares  and 
utilised, as  normal practice,  to satisfy  the obligations  of the  Company's 
Savings Related Share Option Schemes. 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  1035.00 pence per  share and the  lowest 
purchase price paid was 1014.00 pence per share.

Following this  change  AMEC's  total  issued  share  capital  is  315,187,449 
ordinary shares, of which 7,346,420 are registered as Treasury Shares, leaving
a balance of 307,841,029 shares with voting rights.

Cumulative  purchases  to   date  under  the   buyback  programme  amount   to 
approximately £282.13 million.

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