Saturday, September 5, 2009

OIL giant SHELL is preparing to axe more than 2,000 of its staff, it was claimed last night.

Sources said that middle-managers had been told in an internal email that “the coming days will bring more information about Shell’s reorganisation”.

A Shell protest website – – claimed 15 PER CENT of the company’s exploration and production team could go.

Shell, which axed 150 top managers in July, has previously warned that 24,500 would be “affected” in some way by chief exec Peter Voser’s restructuring plans.

The company refused to comment last night.
