Cairn Energy makes 40% reduction to headcount


Cairn Energy has made reductions to its staff cutting 40% of its headcount in both full-time employees and contractors. The company made the announcement in a pre-close update in which it said its 2015 focus would be on an appraisal and exploration programme in Senegal. Cairn is currently still engaged in discussion with the Indian Tan department as it struggles to gain access to the value of its 10% share of Cairn Energy.
