BRITAIN LOSE 120,000 JOBS

As many as 120,000 oil workers will have lost their jobs in Britain by the end of the year compared to mid-2014 when oil prices started declining and unleashed sector-wide cost cuts, the industry's lobby group said on Friday.

Britain's oil industry and indirectly related jobs like supply chain and services are estimated to fall to 330,000 by the end of the year, down from 450,000 in 2014, Oil and Gas UK said in a report.

Major British oil industry employers like Royal Dutch Shell , BP and Chevron have all announced substantial job cuts in order to rein in costs as revenues have been hit hard by weak oil prices.

Shell announced an additional 475 job cuts in its UK and Ireland upstream business two weeks ago, part of a global drive to shed 12,500 roles between 2015 and the end of 2016.

"The total employment we will sustainably provide depends on the level of investment attracted into the basin," said Deirdre Michie, chief executive of Oil and Gas UK.

"If investment falls, then so will jobs."

Britain's North Sea, one of the oldest oil and gas basins, has been particularly strongly impacted by the market downturn as low revenue prospects are coupled with some of the world's highest exploration and production costs.

Around half of British oil jobs are located in Scotland and the Scottish government has set up a taskforce to help oil workers find employment elsewhere.

SMALL BRITAIN'S NUCLEAR

WNN - Advanced Nuclear Technologies - otherwise known as small nuclear or small reactor technologies - encompass a wide range of nuclear reactor technologies under development, BEIS noted. "The common attributes that these technologies share is that they are smaller than conventional nuclear power station reactors and are designed so that much of the plant can be fabricated in a factory environment and transported to site, reducing construction risk and making them less capital-intensive," it said.
