It's well known that Shell plans to lay off more than 9,000 staff globally, as the oil supermajor itself announced back in September. The company has been otherwise quiet about the potential impact on its remaining North Sea business, however. Until now.
Tuesday, a number of British media, including the BBC and Energy Voice, report that Shell intends to dismiss 330 of its UK employees within the oil and gas business. The majority of these reportedly work in the Aberdeen division.
