CALGARY — Calgary-based Talisman Energy Inc. (TSX:TLM) is laying off 220 workers in its North American natural gas business.
Company spokeswoman Pheobe Buckland says the job losses amount to 15 per cent of the company’s North American workforce, and four per cent of its overall headcount.
Most of the cuts affect workers in Calgary, but some field offices will see reductions as well.
Talisman’s international operations — in Asia and the North Sea, for example — are unaffected.
Talisman is in the midst of restructuring its North American natural gas business into separate shale and conventional gas units.
