A Scottish energy firm is expanding in India, creating up to 100 jobs.
Wood Group, which employs 130 people in the country, has opened an engineering hub to build on its existing presence in India, where the company has operated since 2000.
The expansion, supported by Scottish Development International, will enable the New Delhi-based firm to offer more services to both the domestic market and to international projects in the Middle East, Asia, Australia and Europe.
During a tour of the new hub, External Affairs Secretary Fiona Hyslop, who is on an official visit to India, said: "Wood Group is a significant player in the energy sector and a champion of Scotland's international growth.
"Their expansion demonstrates a continued strengthening of business ties between our two countries, and highlights the appetite of Scottish companies to develop into Indian markets.
"There is enormous demand for energy across India which, coupled with its government's ambition to reduce its reliance on oil and gas imports, presents significant opportunity for Scotland to export our knowledge and expertise.
"This project clearly demonstrates the opportunities on offer for Scottish companies looking to broaden their horizons in overseas markets, which is a key driver for long-term growth."
David Clark, a regional director of the company, said Wood Group is experiencing a huge demand for engineers.
"We have been looking at where some of the world's best engineering talent is based and the pedigree of engineering skills in India is especially high," he said.
"This development provides a gateway for Wood Group to bring new skilled and talented engineers into our global organisation and deliver enhanced engineering, operations and maintenance services to oil and gas production and pipeline assets."
