Royal Dutch Shell plc has confirmed that more than 200 workers will be cut from its Norwegian operations.
“The planned organizational adjustments entail a reduction of 75 employee positions. This will bring Norske Shell’s total number of employees from 680 to 605,” a Shell representative told Rigzone.
“We have also announced that 156 contracts with hired staff are likely to be impacted by the planned changes. Norske Shell employees will be given the opportunity to apply for selective voluntary severance packages,” the spokesperson added.
