Halliburton cuts 178 employees in Colorado - filing

DENVER, Oct 9 (Reuters) - Top U.S. hydraulic fracturing provider Halliburton this week said it would cut 178 employees in Colorado, according to a state filing.

The layoffs are concentrated in Mesa county in Western Colorado, according to a notice with Colorado’s Department of Labor and Employment.

Earlier this year, Halliburton said it had cut its North American workforce by 8% as reduced customer spending prompted a slowdown in hydraulic fracturing activity.

The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (Reporting by Liz Hampton; Editing by Bernadette Baum)
