In total, about 600 of the current 2100 jobs will be lost. Just over half of these are hired staff, about 250 people are permanently employed. These are jobs that are disappearing due to a voluntary severance scheme. Due to the falling gas price, a reorganization had been going on for some time, said the spokesman.
A further reorganization is planned for next year. The company could not yet say how many people have to get out. “That depends on the minister’s decision regarding the closure of the Groningen gas field.” That closure is foreseen in 2022.
Focus on small gas fields
“We will remain in business,” emphasizes the spokesperson. “We will become a lot smaller and will focus on gas extraction in small fields on land and sea.” Groningen, which according to the spokesperson can already be seen as a small field due to decreasing volumes, will remain part of that for the time being.
According to the spokesman, the corona crisis has no influence on the reorganisations. “Production has been good in recent times, we have not had to claim support from the government.”
