The umbrella body for offshore contractors has pledged to try and reach a deal with unions over a wage dispute.
Paul Atkinson, chief executive of the Offshore Contractors Association, said talks with the Unite and GMB unions were ongoing more than a month after members rejected a proposal.
But round table negotiations are expected to end within days as a final offer looms on the horizon.
Atkinson said: “We are continuing to discuss our proposal with union officials.
“Our commitment is to working with them to reach an agreement that protects and sustains the North Sea industry and employment opportunities within the sector, now and in the long-term.”
Unite and GMB, want a wage increase for their members, along with improved sick pay and paid travel time.
The unions have been locked in a long-running dispute with OCA over the changes.
Talks broke down after a deal was rejected at the end of 2016 with the unions voting “overwhelmingly” against it.
Union bosses formally registered a failure to agree with OCA, claiming the offer fell short of members’ expectations.
In a joint statement from GMB and Unite, the unions have now said they expect one last offer from the OCA in the coming days.
The statement said: “As previously advised GMB and UNITE have declared a failure to agree with the OCA which has triggered the dispute resolution procedure.
“Trade union officers and the offshore union reps have recently attended direct talks with the OCA.
“We are now awaiting the final written confirmation of a pay offer from the OCA employers within the next few days.
“Once we have formally received the OCA’s final offer we will communicate further with our union members.”
An OCA spokeswoman said talks were “ongoing”.
