Suncor – To cut 1,000 jobs

Oilsands giant Suncor Energy says it will cut approximately 1,000 jobs and reduce its 2015 spending plans in response to lower oil prices. Suncor

The job cuts will primarily affect contract workers, but will also involve a reduction in employee positions, according to Suncor’s announcement, made in a press release today. The Calgary-based company also said it will implement a hiring freeze “for roles that are not critical to operations and safety.”

“Cost management has been an ongoing focus, with successful efforts to reduce both capital and operating costs well underway before the decline in oil prices,” said Suncor CEO Steve Williams in the press release.

“However, in today’s low crude price environment, it’s essential we accelerate this work. Today’s spending reductions are consistent with our commitment to spend within our means and maintain a strong balance sheet.”
