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.
