Oil workers at the Polar Pioneer rig are confronted with a downsizing process because the market is not developing in the way thought previously. In addition to redundancies, some workers will be offered other jobs, but in a more junior position. The company Aibel published the plan of further redundancies. Earlier this year Aibel had already announced a reduction of staff by 230. Aibel’s round of cuts is due to a decrease in maintenance and modification assignments. At the same time oil service company Bilfinger is going to cut positions due to oil companies’ strategy to cut costs and the downturn that they notice.
