Canada’s petroleum industry – 40,000 jobs cut and more layoffs still to come

After almost two years of sinking oil prices and at least 40,000 job cuts, Canada’s petroleum industry Alberta Oil Sandstill isn’t finished tackling its bloated operations.

The next round of layoffs has already begun with Cenovus Energy Inc. and Murphy Oil Corp. announcing workforce reductions last week. Ongoing cuts by Suncor Energy Inc., Encana Corp. and others will likely result in thousands more jobs lost by the end of the year as the Canadian industry shaves billions worth of spending in order to continue operating in one of the world’s most expensive oil-producing regions.

“It will probably take another six months before some of the bloated staffing levels are tackled,” said Todd Hirsch, chief economist at ATB Financial in Calgary. “Many of these companies are getting employment levels down to the bare bones and over the spring and summer there will be more layoffs.”
