TechnipFMC to cut 80 jobs in Norway

Oil and gas services company TechnipFMC has decided to reduce staffing within its subsea services business unit by up to 80 positions. 

According to a Thursday report by Petro.no, a Norwegian oil industry news website, the company decided to decrease its headcount due to reduced activity in Norway.

TechnipFMC’s subsea business unit is headquartered in Ågotnes, outside Bergen, but has employees in most of the company’s Norwegian locations.

Communications manager at TechnipFMC, Andreas Helgesen, told Petro.no that all subsea services employees had been offered voluntary final agreements. If the company does not reach the desired number through voluntary deals, it will have to resort to standard terminations, the spokesperson explained.

In a separate statement given to another Norwegian media outlet, Sysla, Helgesen said: “We see that the reduced activity [in the Norwegian sector] will continue, and we must, therefore, reduce the permanent staffing by up to 80 people.”

According to various news sources earlier this year, the company already cut 1,000 jobs in the first six months of 2017 as part of a restructuring planned before the merger between Technip and FMC Technologies. Also, prior to merger with Technip, FMC Technologies cut 700 Norwegian workers last April, on top of 500 laid-off in 2015.

Offshore Energy Today has reached out to TechnipFMC for a statement regarding these reports.

What he told to Petro.no, TechnipFMC’s Helgesen confirmed to us too.

“I can confirm the that we have announced a headcount reduction in our subsea services unit in Norway, Helgesen said, adding that the reason was a reduced activity for the services provided by this unit.
