Wood Group Mustang’s chief executive said the company has received 1800 applications for just 250 positions to work on a major contract win from Statoil.
Otto Soberg said it had not been difficult to receive enquiries from people about the positions available.
Last month, Statoil awarded the company a six-year deal for contracts on Snorre A and B, Grane and Visund.
The deal had a value of $400million and will allow Wood Group Mustang to participate in new competitive contracts on individual projects in Statoil’s portfolio.
Soberg told Norwegian media the new jobs would be split between Bergen and Stavanger.
He said while the volume of applications were high, the company would make sure it provided those seeking a role with feedback regardless of success.
The boss said the company was looking forward to the start of the new contracts.
The decision last year to award the contract to Wood Group Mustang impacted on Aker Solutions.
At the time, the company had been the main supplier of maintenance and modifications services for Statoil-operated fields in Norway.
