Petrofac cuts look to hit further North Sea jobs after consultations start on 65 oil and gas positions in the UK sector.
All positions currently under scrutiny are on Canadian Natural Resources (CNR) platforms.
According to Petrofac, the consultations are inline with CNR’s wishes to reduce its contractor workforce within the North Sea.
A spokeswoman for Petrofac said: “Petrofac is committed to supporting its customer in securing the long term sustainability of its assets in the North Sea.
“In line with our customer’s planned activity levels and a need for further efficiencies, Petrofac has commenced a consultation process with offshore personnel proposing a reduction in staffing levels.
“We are engaging with those affected and will make every effort to minimise the impact.”
