Houston-based natural gas compression company Exterran will close its makeready shops in Davis and Pocola, affecting 32 workers in the state.
Exterran provides natural gas compression, as well as oil and gas production, processing, treating, transportation and storage services to the oil and gas industries.
The company will keep its offices open in Davis and Pocola but is eliminating positions at the two locations that prepared natural gas compression units for new customers, said Susan Moore, a spokeswoman for Exterran.
Exterran this week notified the Oklahoma Department of Commerce that it would eliminate the jobs at the end of January. Some of the workers will be able to transfer within the company, she said.
“It was a difficult decision to make for us, but we made the decision to better align our costs and capabilities of the current market,” Moore said.
