Further Blow to North Sea as Technip Announce Subsea Redundancies

Published in Oil Industry News on Wednesday, 23 September 2015

Graphic for News Item: Further Blow to North Sea as Technip Announce Subsea Redundancies

Speculations that Technip UK was to announce redundancies within its subsea division have been confirmed.

The Aberdeen-based Subsea business, employs approximately 700 people within its Westhill offices on the outskirts of city.

The company will now meet with staff to discuss the effects of a major cost reductions scheme, which will include a division overhaul and the proposed job cuts to its Westhill base.

Technip UK will now enter into a consultation phase with its staff about the job loses – it is expected that over 80 jobs are at threat.

A company spokesman said: “In response to the ongoing challenging conditions being experienced by the UK oil and gas industry, Technip UK limited confirms it will be restructuring its UK subsea delivery business.

“This proposal forms part of the accelerated cost reductions measures announced earlier this year by the global Technip group.

“The company will enter into a period of collective consultation with its workforce relating to its proposal to achieve a cost saving by reducing its number of staff positions.

“This is being proposed to reflect the anticipated reduced requirement and needs of the wider industry.

“The consultation process will be carried out in accordance with legislative requirements.

“Group wide measures are designed to ensure Technip maintains its leading position within the industry. This proposal covers the UK subsea delivery business based in Westhill, Aberdeen.”

The company announced early this year that it was undergoing a major restructuring which would reduce staff count by at least 6,000.

Chief Executive Thierry Pilenko commented: “The slowdown in the oil and gas industry is prolonged and harsh.

“Therefore we have decided to accelerate our cost reduction and efficiency measures – which I know will have tough consequences for employees across the Group.”

Technip employs about 38,000 people in 48 countries.
