Oil major BP has reduced its workforce in Azerbaijan by 8% following the global drop in crude prices.
The company said around 225 jobs would go as it looks to streamline its business in the “challenging market environment”.
Last year the company announced it would be making cuts of $1billion to its operational costs.
The job reductions will affect 105 Azeri nationals and 150 foreign workers.
The company currently has 3,254 employees in the region and is the biggest foreign investor in the region.
A spokesman said: “Our projects are moving ahead and will continue to move ahead in accordance with our plans that we have agreed with the government and co-venturers.”
Earlier this week the company also said it would be freezing base pay across the group this year.
