Cabinet Secretary for Finance John Swinney said:
“Scotland’s oil and gas sector is enjoying record investment, and it is very encouraging to see a strengthening of the international expansion of Statoil in establishing their new head office in Aberdeen.
“There is now a cluster of world class companies headquartered in Scotland with strengths in many areas including project management, subsea, well-management and training services. The presence of this world class cluster means that Scotland is now a major player in the global oil and gas supply chain, with Scottish companies now operating in over 100 countries.”
