Report: Halliburton to cut staff at Bakersfield plant

Halliburton Co. will reduce employees at its Bakersfield plant in California, following an earlier layoff of 800 people in Oklahoma, Reuters reported, citing a filing with California authorities.

About 70 employees will be affected by the move, according to Reuters.

In October, the company also had staff cuts of about 650 people in its Rockies region operations, which includes Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico and North Dakota.
