Amid plans to trim its global workforce by more than 10,000 jobs, Royal Dutch Shell is expecting to shift up to 95 jobs from New Orleans to Houston, representing about 5 percent of the company’s 1,900 local workforce.

Shell plans to cut 2,800 positions worldwide as part of its merger with British rival BG Group and trim its global numbers by 7,500 positions amid slumping oil prices.

“Our New Orleans office continues to be our operations center of expertise for Deep Water, including engineering, operations support and three offshore technology centers,” Shell spokeswoman Kimberly Windon said Monday. “Shell values our position and presence in the Greater New Orleans area — for our ongoing business, offshore training needs and long-standing relationships in the community.”

Windon said Shell “continuously evaluates workforce needs to ensure we have the right number of employees and contractors in place to deliver value from all aspects of our business.”
