Mr Voser wrote to staff this week, in an e-mail seen by the Financial Times, that, during August, managers had “worked hard at redesigning the rest of their affected organisations or adapting and accelerating their own change journeys”. He added: “Transition 2009 and our other change journeys will result in significant ongoing staff reductions.”, an independent website used by present and former Shell staff, said: “Although precise figures have not been supplied to us, our estimate based on an analysis of the leaked information received, is that on average, staff numbers [in exploration and production] will be cut by 15 per cent.”

It said some experienced staff expected to have to re-apply for their jobs.
