Energy giant BP said it was shedding 200 staff jobs and 100 contractors in its North Sea operations today following a sharp drop in oil prices. North Sea Oil

The company employs around 3,500 onshore and offshore workers in the North Sea operations, mainly in and around the oil hub city of Aberdeen in Scotland.

Trevor Garlick, regional president for BP North Sea, said the cuts were inevitable due to the “well-documented challenges of operating in this maturing region” and “toughening market conditions”.

“We are committed to the North Sea and see a long-term future for our business here,” he added.

A BP spokesman said that staff were informed today and the cuts would “ensure that our business in the North Sea is both competitive and sustainable for the long term”.

The 200 jobs being cut are all onshore.
