US oil major Chevron plans to relocate its remaining Aberdeen employees to a prominent Granite City office block.
The company’s North Sea subsidiary has submitted a building warrant to move into the third floor of Marischal Square 2, in the city centre.
A decision on the warrant, lodged by NORR Consultants on Chevron’s behalf, is expected to be made by Aberdeen City Council shortly.
Chevron’s UK North Sea business was sold to Ithaca Energy, a subsidiary of Israeli firm Delek, in a £1.6 billion deal completed in November 2019.
Ithaca took up the lease on Chevron’s former base at Hill of Rubislaw in Aberdeen and retained 450 Chevron employees, including 200 offshore.
The acquisition did not include the Aberdeen branch of Chevron’s global technology centre or its 19.4% non-operated stake in the Clair field, west of Shetland.
Chevron employees linked to those operations are being rehoused in Marischal Square, which opened in December 2017.
The complex is home to a number of different firms across its two buildings on Aberdeen’s Broad Street.
It follows an announcement at the end of last year that professional services firm KPMG will move into 1 Marischal Square from its base on Albyn Place in spring.
If plans are approved and the firm moves in, Chevron North Sea would join EY, Tenaris and RBS, which are located on floors four, five and six respectively.
