OGN Group, the North East-based offshore engineering company, will create 600 jobs on Tyneside after winning a new multi-million pound contract with oil and gas firm EnQuest.

OGN will help rebuild one of EnQuest's 249m vessels. Once the work is completed, the vessel will then go to work in the North Sea's oil fields.

David Edwards, chief executive at OGN Group, said: “This project will have a significant impact on the North East economy, particularly in terms of creating employment and providing opportunities for the region’s high quality supply chain."
