State oil company Statoil, faced with falling oil prices and rising costs, reportedly plans to cut 500 jobs on its offshore platforms on top of the roughly 1,400 jobs eliminated so far as it tries to slim down its organisation. More land-based employees may lose their jobs as well, as the country’s oil and offshore industry stops gushing. Management unveiled the new cuts at a meeting with the company’s works council. Around 500 workers on Statoil’s offshore installations will likely need to find something else to do, while an unclear number of other Statoil employees may also need to leave the company. The trade unions concluded that no one has a secure job anymore.
