Halliburton to reduce Artesia workforce

Halliburton has announced layoffs in Artesia.

Spokesman William Fitzgerald says the company does not drill in Eddy County, but it does have two locations in Artesia.

In an email to the Current-Argus, he says Halliburton continues monitoring the business environment and should adjust the size of its workforce to align with current business demands.

Fitzgeral says the company values all employees, but he calls reductions necessary to work through this market.
