Aker Solutions said it would be making further job cuts across its operations.
The Norwegian firm said the decision will affect 650 jobs in India, the UK and Norway.
Employees were told today about plans to cut the number of jobs.
An Aberdeen spokesman said 100 jobs were at risk in its Aberdeen and London offices.
He said: “Aker Solutions today informed employees of the need to reduce the company’s workforce capacity. About 650 positions, mainly in Norway, the UK and India, may be affected. The adjustments are being made because of the continued market slowdown and as part of a global reorganization that will strengthen the company’s competitiveness. Around 100 positions may be affected in Aberdeen and London.”
Its thought 170 positions could go from its subsea services facility at Ågotnes and about 100 positions at its yard in Egersund.
The decision has been made as a result of the continued market downturn across the globe.
In October last year, Aker Solutions hinted further job cuts could be on the cards.
In its third quarter results it was revealed sales for the period totaled £597million, compared with £746 a year earlier.
Earnings before interest and taxes in the last quarter fell to £28.4million, from £32.7million previously.
