Aker Solutions to Add 1,300 UK Jobs by 2015

07 June 2012

Aker Solutions , the Norwegian oil services company, said Thursday it will add 1,300 new jobs to its UK business by 2015, as growth in global oil and gas markets drives demand for the company's technologies and services.

The company opened a new office in Chiswick Park, West London, in 2011, working on field development projects for the North Sea and worldwide. The new jobs will come from establishing an engineering hub in London and as the office expands it will work in other business areas, including subsea, drilling technologies and well intervention services.

The company employs more than 3,000 people across the U.K., and recently announced 500 new jobs in Aberdeen.
