Amec Foster Wheeler (AFW) today reiterated its commitment to Aberdeen and the North Sea after enjoying a busy six months for the region. AFW said it was “powering ahead” with hook up operations on a number of key North Sea development projects, including Clair Ridge and Quad 204, both of which were creating “good opportunities” for employment. The engineering and project management firm’s Scottish workforce, thought to number around 4,500 people, is largely focused in the Aberdeen area and offshore.

Record North Sea revenues at Amec Foster Wheeler (AFW) were not enough to prevent first half profits from nosediving at the engineering and project management giant. London-headquartered AFW – a major oil and gas supply chain player – said today it had worked on a number of key North Sea projects during the six months, including hook-up and commissioning for Clair Ridge and Quad 204. Revenues for the Northern Europe and CIS region lifted 3% year-on-year to £759, with oil and gas contributing £570million to that figure.
