Exclusive: Centrica to cut 90 positions from its European operations including Aberdeen, Morecambe Bay

Centrica has cut 90 jobs from across its European operations.

The move comes after the firm previously revealed it was in consultation with staff including in the UK both in in Aberdeen and Morecambe Bay.

A total of 25 jobs will go in Scotland while a further 24 will be reduced from the firm’s operations in England.

A further 13 positions will also be removed in Norway.

The consultation period involved 710 members of staff at the time.

Offshore jobs were not affected by the consultation process.

It was reported last month the firm was looking to redeploy as many members of staff as possible and 54 people have now been redeployed into new roles.

A Centrica spokesman said: “After a full consultation with our people, we have taken the difficult but necessary decision to reduce the number of roles in our E&P team.

“We want to maximise the potential of our North Sea and Morecambe Bay assets, and over several months have been working hard to find new ways of operating and finalising the structure of our
business to make that happen.

“We recognise that this represents difficult news for our employees who may be affected. Our priority now is to support all those impacted.”

It comes after Maersk Oil said yesterday it would be cutting 160 roles from its Danish Business Unit.

In April last year Centrica said it would cut about 3,000 jobs.
