AN oil services firm based in Westhill is looking to cut up to 80 jobs.
Technip UK is consulting with around 700 staff, who help provide engineering and construction services in the North Sea.
This summer the firm announced it was to shed 6,000 jobs around the world as oil prices remained low.
The company said it was restructuring its UK subsea delivery business in response to the “ongoing challenges” in the sector.
A spokesman said: “The company will enter into a period of collective consultation with its workforce relating to its proposal, to achieve a cost saving by reducing the number of staff positions.
“This is being proposed to reflect the anticipated reduced requirement and needs of the wider industry.”
Around 5,500 North Sea jobs have been lost since 2014. Industry leaders have said “radical” measures are needed to reduce operational costs.
