Halliburton’s Broussard office is one of several of the company’s properties that will go up for auction Oct. 7-9.

The Houston-based company will put up properties in west Texas, Mississippi, North Dakota and in Canada for auction along with its property in Haynesville, according to a report from World Oil magazine. Williams & Williams will conduct the online auction.

The 17,100-square-foot Broussard office is at 1016 N. Cruse Ave.

Halliburton laid off 36 workers at its Broussard facility on April 14 and closed the office, according to a letter sent to the Louisiana Workforce Commission under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act. The types of jobs impacted included geologists, quality assurance inspectors and mechanical technicians.

Halliburton promised to create 150 jobs in Lafayette at a new $65 million manufacturing facility in 2012. It laid off hundreds of workers across Texas and Oklahoma and closed its facility outside Oklahoma City in December that employed about 800. It furloughed about 3,500 workers at its Houston office until June.
