BP plans new headquarters in Aberdeen

Sep 20, 2001 02:00 AM

BP is to build new headquarters in Aberdeen. The news is seen as boosting the status of the city as Energy Capital of Europe and confirms the company's commitment to the North Sea oil sector. The multi-million pound new offices (in a four-storey building at Dyce) will house all BP's 2,000 staff currently based at three locations around the city, and it is hoped to have them up and running by 2005.
BP's group vice-president for North Sea operations, Scott Urban, said that following on the company's announcement last year that it was to invest around £ 680 mm in the North Sea over four years, it was decided that it was essential to have the right standard of offices for staff.

He added "We firmly believe that North Sea operations will remain an integral and important part of the BP group's activities for many years to come. With new ways of working and dramatic improvements in technology, I am confident that BP will find new opportunities, continue to employ many people and continue to play anactive part in the Aberdeen community."
Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce CEO Amanda Harvie welcomed the announcement, saying: "This indicates that there is a tremendous long-term future for the oil and gas industry in the UK Continental Shelf, which is a key driver for the economy of Scotland and the whole of the UK."
