Dateline 2021-01-15, Argus Media:
Shell will cut 250-300 jobs from its upstream operations in Malaysia over the next two years, or around 2pc of the current workforce, calling it a necessary change to ensure it is “in a strong position to capture opportunities in the energy transition”.
Shell announced in September plans to cut 7,000-9,000 jobs over the next two years as part of a structural reorganisation to shift towards a low-carbon future.
Most of Shell Malaysia’s upstream staff will relocate to its principal office in Miri in the Malaysian state of Sarawak. The firm will continue to maintain an office in Kota Kinabalu in Sabah state for downstream businesses and some upstream support. “There are no changes to Shell’s offshore deepwater operations in Sabah,” it said.
