NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Weak oil prices will put more people who depend on jobs operating out of the Gulf of Mexico out of work.

According to our partners at Nola.com|The Times-Picayune, Shell plans to cut, consolidate or relocate more than 150 offshore jobs as part of an effort to shave 2,200 positions across its global operations. 

Shell informed employees of its decision July 20. It issued a statement to Nola.com|The Times-Picayune saying the cuts are necessary to "remain competitive and better position Shell's Gulf of Mexico projects for future growth."
