Stena consultation puts 60 Aberdeen workers at risk

Almost 60 oil workers living in the North-east are at risk of redundancy at Stena Drilling, the company has confirmed.

Aberdeen-based Stena said it was in consultation with a total of 450 people employed between three drillships currently warm-stacked in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria.

The drilling contractor said about 57 of those involved in the consultation live in Aberdeen or Aberdeenshire. Those affected are rig based, not office based, the company said.
