Maersk Drilling to shed another 140 jobs

Maersk Drilling is preparing another wave of redundancies in Norway as the contracts for jackups Maersk Gallant and Maersk Inspirer end.

Maersk Gallant was picked up by ConocoPhillips in February following a termination by Statoil but is out of contract come August, while Maersk Inspirer finishes its contract with Statoil in the Volve Field at year end.

In a statement on the employees association website, Maersk Ansarres Forning, it was revealed that Maersk Drilling will be making 130-140 jobs redundant as a result.

In May 2015, Maersk Drilling made 180-190 Norway-based employees redundant, followed by an additional 70 in March this year.
