Wood Group to cut another 200 from its workforce

British oil services firm Wood Group PSN has announced it is cutting around 200 people from its payroll.

The company said it is in talks with 750 workers on its Talisman Sinopec contract, following plans to move to a three-week shift pattern.

Aberdeen-based Wood earlier this year axed 80 staff.
