UK-focused EnQuest announced Friday that it has received approval for a new North Sea office in Aberdeen after gaining planning permission for an office development on the derelict Aberdeen Seafood Park site in the harbor area.
EnQuest, the UK's largest independent oil producer in the UK North Sea, currently employs approximately 500 people at two locations in Aberdeen. The new building will have the capacity for 800 staff, enabling EnQuest to consolidate its workforce under one roof.
EnQuest UKCS Managing Director David Heslop commented in a company statement:
"EnQuest has enjoyed considerable growth since it was established in 2010 and we have been looking at opportunities to relocate from our current sites to larger, bespoke facilities in Aberdeen for some time, reaffirming the city's status as our center of operational excellence.
"Our chief aim was to secure a head-quarter building in the city center which reinforces EnQuest's long-term commitment to Aberdeen and the North Sea."
