An offshore engineering firm has announced it will launch a consultancy arm.
Oceaneering, which has a base in Dyce, said the formation of the new advisory business would see 20 roles created.
The firm said it was opening an office in Glasgow to accommodate new staff members but it is likely some of the new roles will be based in Aberdeen.
