3 July 2017

Following Statoil’s confirmation that 1500 offshore positions will be supported by the hook up and commissioning of its  Mariner development project, Deirdre Michie, Chief Executive of Oil & Gas UK, said:

“This is great news for the highly skilled people working in our industry and demonstrates yet again the positive future of the basin. To ensure that other ambitious projects like Statoil’s Mariner field development can proceed on the UK Continental Shelf, our focus must remain on improving efficiency and attracting fresh investment into the basin in order to sustain the hundreds of thousands of jobs our sector still supports.”
