Exploration and production firm EnQuest has closed its offices in Aberdeen city centre today as climate change protestors descended on the Granite City.
A spokeswoman for EnQuest said the measure was a “precaution” to keep its employees safe.
The organisation said its “Red Rebel Brigade” would also stage a demonstration, starting at the train station at 1pm before moving on to Union Street and then Aberdeen Harbour.
EnQuest has an office at Annan House, near the train station.
EnQuest’s spokeswoman said: “We can confirm that as a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of our people, the EnQuest offices at Annan House have been closed today, Thursday 16 January.
“This was in anticipation of an advertised protest by Extinction Rebellion in Aberdeen.
“We have no further comment to make at this time.”
