Southwestern Energy lays off 102 employees

CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) - Southwestern Energy laid off 102 employees Thursday, 80 of which were located in the Fayetteville Shale operations located in central Arkansas.

Below is Southwestern Energy's official statement:

"A reduction in operations and shifting capital budgets across Southwestern Energy related to commodity prices, unavoidably led to a lower number of employees being required in certain areas. Southwestern comprehensively evaluated various scenarios and carefully considered the impact to our employees. In many cases, employees were given the opportunity to transfer to other locations or positions. Nonetheless, positions were not available at this time for all our current employees.

In total, 102 employees were impacted. 80 of these employees were located in our Fayetteville Shale operations and the remaining 22 were in various other locations.
