A former oil boss who claims he was stalked online by a former employee yesterday denied that he owes him hundreds of thousands of pounds.
The head of an Aberdeen-based energy sector procurement services firm that went bust last month has started trading again. Warren Anderson was the controlling shareholder in Gas and Oil Technology Services (GOT Services) when administrators were brought in to wind down the business in July, putting 19 employees out of work with immediate effect. But last week it emerged that Mr Anderson had set up GOT Procurement Services at the same registered address less than a fortnight after the earlier venture hit the buffers.
A strong order book could not prevent Aberdeen-based procurement services firm Gas and Oil Technology (GOT) going bust, with 19 jobs lost amid the oil price downturn. Work ground to a halt at GOT because the firm did not have enough stock to fulfil its orders, despite investing heavily in infrastructure in recent years, administrators from KPMG said yesterday. Nineteen of GOT’s 23 employees have been let go with immediate effect, with the remaining four staying on temporarily to help wind down the company.
