Canadian Oil Company Lays Off 155 in Colorado

May 13, 2016

On the heels of a bankruptcy filing, a Canadian oilfield services company says it’s laying off 155 workers in Colorado.

The Sanjel Corporation says it will cut the jobs by the end of the month, the Denver Business Journal reports. The company sold its U.S. assets to Denver-based Liberty Oilfield Services last month.

The Colorado job cuts are part of a larger wave of 800 layoffs across the United States initiated by Sanjel as it shuts down its American operations.
