Maersk To Cut 70 Offshore Drilling Jobs


Maersk is set to cut 70 offshore drilling jobs from its Norwegian operations, as another of its jackup rigs reaches the end of its current contract.

According to Norwegian sources, the cuts will come from the current crew of Maersk Drilling’s Maersk Reacher jackup rig.

The Reacher is currently drilling in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea, on a five year contract with supermajor BP, but due to complete during September 2016.

The cuts follow similar redundancies made last year when Maersk Giant came out of contract in September and Maersk Guardian came out of contract in October.
