Shetland 'Extremely Desirable'

by Tom Morton -


BP's Area Operations Manager at the Sullom Voe Oil Terminal in Shetland, Steve Cowie, says the isles are proving a very desirable posting for prospective employees. The attractions of the community have been important in attracting new skilled workers from all over the world to the isles, as BP carry out major refurbishment works at SVT and prepare for the construction of a new gas sweetening plant on site.

A new rotational working system has been introduced, offering a two weeks on, three weeks off system similar to that employed on offshore rigs and platforms.

Full details are in an article in the magazine Rigzone here.

An interview with Steve will be available next year as part of a video project currently being carried out by Promote Shetland and Highlands and Islands Enterprise.
