Oil giant Royal Dutch Shell is on the verge of carrying through with a large number of previously announced job cuts and reassignments, according to an employee e-mail sent by CEO Peter Voser.

The ranks of Shell’s upper-level management were cut by about 20 percent, from 750 to 600 people.

August was spent “re-designing” departments and groups within the company, according to the Aug. 31 memo.

Voser said the company will fill positions in the new organization during October and November.

Shell previously said its reorganization would affect about 24,000 of its 102,000 workers, though not necessarily with job cuts in all cases. The company employs nearly 13,000 people in the Houston area.
