Norwegian oil and gas consultancy Add Energy has doubled its Aberdeen and Houston headcounts after netting a number of new contracts.
Stavanger-headquartered Add now employs a total of 55 people across the two cities.
Add said the new deals would enable it to safeguard jobs for the next three years in its asset integrity management division.
Last month, the firm said it had agreed a £15million contract to provide global maintenance data centralisation services to BP.
Add executive vice president Peter Adam said: “We are thrilled to have increased the headcount in our Aberdeen office, especially at a time when many companies are looking to reduce personnel.
“We have endeavoured to recruit locally during the process to ensure opportunities for both the development and employment of graduate engineers in the city.”
“Recruiting locally also allowed us to attain the local expertise and build a pool of highly experienced principle engineers to consult for our clients and also mentor and coach younger engineers for the future.”
