Jobs are under threat at Aberdeenshire-based energy service firm Proserv, it has emerged.
A spokeswoman for the company confirmed a 30-day consultation was under way but declined to say how many roles were at risk.
She added: “Due to the continued challenging market conditions facing the oil and gas industry, Proserv has entered into a consultation process with our employees in Aberdeen (Westhill) as part of the careful and thorough review of our operations and options.
“While we continue to secure significant global work, some anticipated North Sea projects have been delayed due to the downturn, which has unfortunately forced us to take this action at this time.”
In September, leading credit ratings agency S&P Global Ratings warned Proserv’s capital structure was “unsustainable”.
Proserv employs about 1,200 people globally and is owned by US private-equity firm Riverstone.
