70 employees lose their jobs in Teekay


Production ship Petrojarl Varg goes off contract in August when the Varg field will be shut down. It means that 70 employees lose their jobs.

Workforce reductions in oil service company have been started, and the employees are informed these days, writes Maritime.no.
– Although Teekay continues to work actively with a number of options for employees both in and outside Norway, it has become necessary to reduce our offshore crew with 70 employees, says communications manager Axel Wiedenmann company.
Part of the crew must go from their jobs already on 1 August. Some join for a while to take care of the preservation of equipment. Each of the 70 positions will disappear in the autumn.
