Maritime Developments puts kit saved from Ceona to use

A north-east back deck systems maker has deployed a piece of rental kit it rescued from Ceona Offshore, which went bust late last year. Maritime Developments initially delivered the 400-tonne reel drive system to Ceona in mid-2014, but agreed to buy it back from administrators at an auction after the stricken subsea engineering contractor folded. Maritime, which has bases in Aberdeen, Peterhead and the US, wrapped up the deal in March before swiftly putting the system to work on its first ever mission, installing risers and umbilicals in the UK continental shelf.

At least 20 Aberdeen jobs at risk at DOF Subsea UK

An Aberdeen-based subsidiary of energy service firm DOF Group is in consultation with north-east workers over plans to shed at least another 20 jobs. The move is part of a drive to cut costs in light of “current and future conditions in the marketplace”, DOF Subsea UK managing director Robert Gillespie said yesterday. DOF is one of a number of vessel owner-operators to have been hit by the oil and gas industry downturn as operators scale back on exploration activity. Earlier this month, Harkand went bust, with the loss of 171 jobs, while Ceona hit the wall in September, eliminating 102 positions.
