Halliburton cuts another 2,000 jobs amid oil market slump

Bloomberg reports that Halliburton Co. cut another 2,000 jobs in the past month as the “worst oil market slump in decades saps demand for work at the world’s largest provider of hydraulic fracturing services.” A Halliburton spokeswoman told the news service that the company, which operates in the Utica shale play, has now cut its work force by 18,000, or about 21 percent, since its peak in 2014.
