Energy Transfer Lays Off 108 Oklahoma Workers
Energy Transfer LP has laid off 108 employees at its Tulsa, Oklahoma office, according to a notice sent to the Oklahoma Office of Workforce Development.
The layoffs come as a result of the Dallas-based pipeline company’s acquisition of SemGroup Corp., which was finalized in early December 2019.
According to the notice, layoffs began Jan. 6. No further information surrounding the layoffs was provided in the notice. Representatives for Energy Transfer declined further comment, telling Rigzone the company “does not comment on personal matters.”
Energy Transfer’s recent merger with SemGroup created a much larger pipeline network for the company by adding assets in Colorado, Oklahoma, Kansas and Canada.
On Jan. 1, former U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry was appointed to the board of LE GP LLC, the general partner of Energy Transfer.
