Fugro has announced further headcount reduction of 200 employees in the coming half year, in particular in the Subsea Services and Geotechnical divisions as it anticipates an even more challenging market in the second half of 2015.

The company said it anticipates the oil services market (around 80% of Fugro’s business) to remain weak for the foreseeable future and will continue to drive cost and capacity down in the second half of the year. This should partially offset the anticipated margin decline.


Technip slips into the red

Paris-based subsea major Technip has slipped into the red in the second quarter as the company booked one-off restructuring charges on market adjusting plans, announced earlier in June.

Namely, on July 6, Technip announced the launch of a restructuring plan with a total one-off charge of €650 million. Of this total, €570 million was booked in the second quarter.
