????中国石化新闻网讯 据能源世界网10月13日墨尔本报道，澳大利亚最大的独立天然气和石油生产商伍德赛德石油公司(Woodside Petroleum)周二表示，该公司将裁员300人，略低于员工总数的8%。由于目前该公司正处于油气行业数十年来最糟糕的状况下，以巩固自己的实力。
????仅在澳大利亚，雪佛龙公司(Chevron Corp)就将裁员25%左右，埃克森美孚(Exxon Mobil Corp)正在寻求自愿离职的员工，Oil Search Ltd也裁减了三分之一的员工。

????Australia's Woodside axes 300 jobs to withstand oil price crash
????Woodside Petroleum, Australia's largest independent gas and oil producer, said on Tuesday it would cut 300 jobs, or just under 8 per cent of its workforce, as it shores itself up in the worst conditions experienced in the oil and gas industry in decades.
????The latest job losses come on top of cuts in its contract workers earlier this year, when it slashed $2 billion in spending for 2020 and put its two biggest gas projects on hold shortly after oil prices plunged.
????"Woodside has undertaken an organisational review to identify the company's workforce needs going forward in this challenging business environment, resulting in the difficult decision to reduce the size of the workforce by around 300 positions," a Woodside spokeswoman said in emailed comments.
????Woodside's cuts are the latest in a wave of oil and gas job losses worldwide.
????In Australia alone, Chevron Corp is set to cut around 25 per cent of its staff, Exxon Mobil Corp is seeking volunteers to quit the company, and Oil Search Ltd axed a third of its workforce.
