Aker Solutions slashes 650 jobs

Norwegian oilfield services company Aker Solutions is reducing its workforce, mainly in the UK, Norway, and India. 

According to a report from BBC, the company’s employees have been told that 650 workers may be affected by this move, with around 100 affected in Aberdeen and London.

According to data on its website, the oil services company has about 13,000 employees in 20 countries.

Offshore Energy Today has reached out to the company seeking confirmation as well as further details about this decision.

A spokesperson for the company said: “Aker Solutions today informed employees of the need to reduce the company’s workforce capacity. About 650 positions, mainly in Norway, the UK and India, may be affected. The adjustments are being made because of the continued market slowdown and as part of a global reorganization that will strengthen the company’s competitiveness.”
