Global oil giant Chevron has confirmed that it is to make some 225 people redundant from its Aberdeen base following a review of its North Sea business operations.
Currently Chevron has approximately 1100 employees and contractors in its Upstream Europe division. Following the re-organisations, the new division will be approximately 900 onshore and offshore positions – including major capital projects.
A spokesman said Chevron hopes to reduce the number of redundancies through other global opportunities for employees and repatriating expatriates – so the exact number of redundancies is not yet known.
He added; “”As a result of the review, Chevron expects reductions of approximately 225 positions, which will include contractors, employees, and expatriates.
“Chevron’s organisational design will be more asset-based with a continuing focus on its operations and progressing its major capital projects, such as Rosebank, Alder, Captain Enhanced Oil Recovery, and Enochdu.”
