The restructuring is related to the continuing low oil price and historic low investments in the oil and gas industry resulting in an increasingly competitive market. With market conditions and the outlook further deteriorating since the start of this year, the restructuring focuses on adapting HMC to decreased work volumes and on enhancing the cost efficiency and competitiveness of the company.As a result of the intended restructuring it is anticipated that the work force will be reduced with compulsory redundancies unfortunately being unavoidable.
