National Oilwell Varco, a manufacturer and parts supplier to the oil and gas industry, is shutting down its Houma facility and laying off the 80 employees that work there.

Layoffs at the facility started Monday, the Louisiana Workforce Commission said, and will continue in phases until NOV shuts down sometime between March 7 and March 21.

Officials with the LWC said they will provide re-employment services to the affected employees, including information on unemployment benefits, résumé help and job-searching tools. Houston-based NOV said it will provide workers with additional pay and benefits because they were unable to provide sufficient notice of the closure “due to economic reasons.”
