Chevron confirms more than 200 redundancies from its Aberdeen base

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.

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.”
