The adminstrator responsible for winding up failed oilfield services company Harkand Group has confirmed 148 jobs are to go in Aberdeen, 50 more than had previously been indicated.

It leaves the city bearing the brunt of the failure of the business, which got into difficulties due to the downturn in the oil and gas industry.

Harkand Group – and a number of its subsidiaries – went into administration on Wednesday. The European business had ceased to trade prior to entering administration due to financial pressures.

Yesterday, joint administrators at Deloitte, said 98 people in Aberdeen would lose their jobs, out of a total of 171. The Group’s European business (based in London and Aberdeen) ceased to trade prior to entering administration due to financial pressures. 39 people are being retained to help wind up the business.

However, this afternoon a spokesman for Deloitte said 148 jobs would go in Aberdeen, the firm’s operations base, for which there is no buyer.

Harkand provided inspection repair and maintenance (IRM) services to the energy industry including multi-purpose and dive support vessels and support operations, is the latest service company to be affected by the downturn in the oil and gas industry. It employed approximately 400 staff with an estimated group turnover of £357m.

It has also been confirmed that the group’s American and African businesses have been saved following a management buyout by Harkand executives, possibly saving up to 100 non-UK jobs.
