OneSubsea, a Schlumberger company, is said to be considering to close up shop in Leeds next year which could lead to loss of up to 600 jobs.

The company that has over 900 employees at its base in Stourton, Leeds, said its order intake was significantly impacted by the downturn in the oil and gas industry leaving a good deal of its plants “underutilised”.
