    Worley here, it is indeed PAYE or goodbye.

    Thanks. In process engineering here. A Wood recruiter couldn't (more likely wouldn't) tell me if a role with them would be inside or outside. Role embedded within a BP FEED project client side team. I reckoned probably caught. So I told them I wasn't interested.

    Besides that, they told me the rate, which was pathetic.

    I think. Seems there's only you left. The rest of us gave up on the industry.

    Shameless bump of this thread.

    It's almost a year since the last post. What's the latest IR35 situation with operators and service companies? Thanks.

    Shell - IR35 inside. I think all new contracts from 2021.
    BP - IR35 inside.

    Bumping this to see if any O&G clients are taking a different approach to last year.

    My main client has just provided an outside SDS. Offshore project but only likely to last for another few months. My other is considered a small company per the rules.

    As for the others I'm hearing about through the grapevine (Worley, Petrofac, BP, CAN), it seems like there's little change from assessments made last year.

    I travelled offshore for the first time a couple of days back. Aberdeen is a weird place right now. Like most places I guess, it felt like a town in stasis.

    I'm still hearing the same anecdotes of layoffs and rate cuts but nothing different from above. With brent at $40, some of the more dire predictions haven't taken hold (yet). Few are working in the offices - even the pipeline systems are being monitored from people's houses with the odd key personnel at the office panel.

    The huge "trump tower" offices some of these operators and service companies built back in the good times look like edifices of a bygone era.
    The entire operating company that I am with has been working from home since the panic set in. Given that our off shore, on shore, pipeline, power generation etc facilities are several thousand kilometres away from where we sit, being at home rather than the office is a 100% non event. The company has recognised it and is reducing it's office space here by 50% saving a couple of million or so $$$ a year in the process. It's simply business as usual for us.
