Subsea service firm Reef Subsea has said it wants to create 10 jobs in Aberdeen this year after moving into new offices.
Reef said it would move all 50 of its north-east employees under one roof after investing £300,000 in a site in Altens.
The Norwegian company said housing all three divisions in the same premises would allow them to work closer together on oil and gas and renewables projects in the North Sea, Gulf of Mexico and Asia.
Reef Subsea chief executive Mark Preece said: “We believe Aberdeen is key for future oil and gas development in the North Sea and, coupled with our strong connections in Norway, it is the best location for our business to flourish.
“The city is also active in attracting and developing its exposure to the renewables industry, where Reef Subsea companies also provide key services, making Aberdeen an attractive place to be.”
Tim Sheehan, chief operating officer, added: “Following two years of extensive development, the time was right to locate a suitable office facility in Aberdeen to bring our teams under one roof and allow for continued expansion.”
Reef Subsea is jointly-owned by offshore vessel operator GC Rieber Shipping and private-equity investor HitecVision.
The firm boosted its presence in Aberdeen after buying Rotech’s subsea business at the end of 2011, having already had offices in the Granite City through its Scanmudring and Specialist Subsea Services businesses.
