Statoil to Carry Out 'Staffing Adjustments' to 2019

Statoil will carry out staffing adjustments from 2016 to 2019, according to a company spokesperson.

Responding to reports that the oil and gas company would be letting staff go in the near future, the Statoil spokesperson stated that no new figures or plans for job cuts affecting its Norwegian Continental Shelf offshore organization had been decided.

The spokesperson did state, however, that the company has progressed proposed changes to a joint operating model, which would bring about a number of measures that would lead to “more efficient operation”.

“Management has considered the measures to have an efficiency potential of a good 600 man-years for the next three years offshore, and will continue to evaluate this in a joint task force,” the spokesperson told Rigzone.

“The staffing adjustments will then be carried out in the period 2016 to 2019, by utilizing the opportunity provided by normal attrition, and also by mature fields being phased out and new activities that will provide available positions as new fields come online in the same three year period – for example Gina Krog 2017, Aasta Hansteen 2018, and Johan Sverdrup 2019),” he added.
