BP switches to 3 on, 3 off rota

Oil giant BP is moving its UK offshore workers to a three weeks on three weeks off rota starting in January. 

BP’s current rota is two weeks on and three weeks off.

According to BBC, the company said that the move to 3/3 rota was made for the “long-term sustainability of the business”.

BBC quotes BP’s spokesperson as saying: “Across BP we are looking at a range of measures to make our business more competitive for the long term.”

Evening Express, Aberdeen’s daily newspaper, reports that BP met with its staff yesterday in order to inform them of the rota change for those working on the company’s offshore sites.

The company employs nearly 4,000 people in the North Sea region.

In an e-mail sent to Offshore Energy Today, BP confirmed the move to 3/3 rota.

The company’s spokesperson further added: “In the North Sea, we believe that a key step toward this is to review our UK offshore rotational arrangements. We spoke to employee representatives yesterday about our decision to move to a 3/3 rota.

“We are committed to full and open consultation with our ECCF and also to ensuring that safe operations remain our number one priority by conducting a thorough risk assessment.”
