EnQuest creates 40 Swansea jobs at oil company

Oil giant EnQuest says it is creating more than 40 jobs in Swansea.

The North Sea gas and oil producer said the new onshore jobs in Swansea would be created over the next three years.

They are part of 1,000 other new jobs being created across the UK oil and gas supply chain in Aberdeen, Newcastle and Manchester.

EnQuest said the jobs had been made possible by UK government measures to stimulate investment in the North Sea.

The jobs are linked to the next phase of a programme to extend the life of the Thistle oil platform in the North Sea.
