The 1,600 staff employed at the sites who do not want to relocate will be offered voluntary redundancy.

Royal Dutch Shell is closing three UK offices, affecting 1,600 employees, including BG’s headquarters in Reading, after its £35bn takeover of the oil and gas company earlier this year.

It has also begun a voluntary redundancy programme as part of a plan to cut 10,300 jobs across the merged group, comprising 7,500 from the original Shell business, as it attempts to cope with the recent plunge in oil prices, and another 2,800 following the merger with BG.

ROYAL Dutch Shell has announced plans to close the BG North Sea head office in Aberdeen where around 300 people work in a move which is expected to lead to further job cuts in the city.

The Anglo Dutch oil giant will run the enlarged North Sea Business formed by the £35bn takeover of BG from its office in the Tullos area of Aberdeen.

Led by chief executive Ben van Beurden, Shell said all 300 BG staff will relocate to Tullos initially. They will be able to apply for redundancy under a voluntary severance programme which is expected to result in an undisclosed number of jobs being cut. read more

SHELL ACCUSED OF BLACKMAILING GRONINGEN ON EARTHQUAKE SAFETY, REPAIRS

A lobbying document Shell caused some serious irritation among Dutch parliamentarians. The oil and gas giant writes that the reduction in gas extraction in Groningen threatens the “economic base” of the plan to strengthen homes in the earthquake zone. Unacceptable blackmail, according to SP province director Eelco Eikenaar.

Shell lobbyists visited a number of parliamentarians over the past weeks, according to the Financieele Dagblad. The company is trying to convince parliament not to further reduce gas extraction in Groningen, otherwise there will be no money for reinforcing buildings in the province. Gas extraction in the earthquake prone province is currently capped at 27 billion cubic meters a year, but there are parties who want to reduce it further. read more

Shell expected to confirm today where North Sea HQ will be post BG takeover

Oil giant Shell is expected to tell staff in Aberdeen today that its North Sea headquarters will be based at Tullos in the wake of its takeover of rival BG Group.

The firm, which completed its multi-billion pound mega-merger with BG in April, will move around 200 former BG staff to its existing premises in the south of the city from their base on Albyn Terrace.

The decision is set to see BG’s former offices – a trio of linked granite-built townhouses at the heart of Aberdeen’s west end – go up for grabs in a market where demand for offices is falling as a result of the oil price crash. read more
