Schlumberger Subsidiary Cuts Jobs in Permian
Product & Logistics Services LLC (P&LS), a subsidiary of Schlumberger Limited, is ceasing operations at its facility in the Permian Basin, resulting in layoffs of 124 employees, according to a letter sent this week to the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC).
The trucking company said it would be “closing employee-serviced operations out of Monahans, Texas, and surrounding areas.” Monahans has been dubbed ‘the center of the Permian Basin.’
More specifically, the WARN notice stated that P&LS would “cease to occupy or operate the facilities located at 1507 West 15th Street, Monahans, Texas.”
The layoffs will occur from July 6 to July 19, 2019 and are expected to be permanent.
Affected employees are not represented by any union and have no bumping rights.
P&LS did not offer a reason for the facility closing in its letter to the TWC.
As of press time Thursday, P&LS could not be reached for comment and their website was inaccessible.
