Shell cuts Gulf of Mexico jobs

Oil major Royal Dutch Shell is implementing structural changes and reducing its workforce in the deep water Gulf of Mexico offshore organization.

Specifically, Shell said that the new organization will require approximately 25% fewer offshore employee and contractor positions. Shell has about 770 people employed in the Gulf deep waters.

A Shell spokesman said: “We are making these changes in order to remain competitive and better position Shell’s Gulf of Mexico projects for future growth.”

According to the company’s spokesperson, these job reductions are part of the additional 2,200 global figure Shell announced in May this year, as part of its further response to the lower for longer oil price environment.
