BG Group Limited Key Developments

BG Group Plans to Cut 154 Jobs

BG Group plans to cut at least 154 jobs as it vacates BG Group Place in downtown Houston and moves employees into the existing Houston offices of Royal Dutch Shell PLC, which acquired BG Group in February. BG US Services Inc. told that it plans to cut 118 jobs on Aug. 31 and another 36 jobs on Sept. 30. The jobs to be cut are from the BG Group Place office, at 811 Main St., suite 3400. The affected employees do not have bumping rights, meaning workers with more seniority cannot take the jobs of those with less seniority. BG Group's trading employees will relocate to 1,000 Main, and all other BG Group staff will relocate to either One Shell Plaza in downtown Houston, the Shell Technology Center in West Houston off Highway 6 or Shell's Woodcreek campus in the Energy Corridor at 200 N. Dairy Ashford Road.
