Union boss casts doubt on sustainability of North Sea maintenance backlog reductions


Job losses and low morale could derail efforts to bring the UK offshore sector's safety-critical maintenance backlog under control, a trade unionist said yesterday. RMT regional organiser Jake Molloy was commenting on a report showing the amount of maintenance work overdue for completion on oil and gas infrastructure was shrinking. Oil and Gas UK’s health and safety report said year-on-year reductions were being reported across the backlog of planned, corrective and deferred work.
