Wood Group PSN, a provider of brownfield services to the oil and gas industry with headquarters in Aberdeen, UK, has reportedly entered into consultation with 380 employees where up to 80 are expected to lose their jobs.
According to STV News, 380 staff were told they will take part in the process.
WGPSN spokesperson told STV News: “We constantly respond to market challenges. Wood Group is continuing to take a number of steps to help customers increase operating efficiency, safely improve performance from oil and gas assets and reduce their costs.”
The spokesperson further added: “All changes made and proposed are done so in consultation with employees and their health and welfare is our top priority. We continue to review our resource requirements to meet our customer needs and service provision to ensure that we are focused on sustaining the business for the long-term.”
In December 2014, WGPSN reduced the rates paid to its UK-based limited company offshore and onshore contract workers.
Offshore Energy Today contacted WGPSN for confirmation; however, at the time of publishing the article we did not receive a response. Should there be more info, the article will be updated accordingly.
