Chiswick Park, the innovative business park development in West London carried out by Stanhope for the Blackstone Group, is proving to be a very successful location for the oil and gas industry. Today, the Norwegian oilfield services firm Aker Solutions, which moved to Chiswick Park last year, has signed a lease to take the entire 220,000 sq ft Building 6.

In Oslo this morning David Cameron said: "Aker Solutions' decision to create 1300 new jobs at a new engineering hub in Chiswick is great news for the local economy and it is a vote of confidence in the skill, expertise and professionalism of our engineering sector."

Chiswick Park was started in 1999 and is also home to Tullow Oil, alongside a group of media firms and others.

Aker Solutions has global sales of almost £4 billion and employs 3000 people already in the UK in Aberdeen, Great Yarmouth, Hastings, Maidenhead, Stockton-on-Tees and Whitstable.
