A local oil and gas company is ''restructuring,'' and that spells bad news for almost 90 jobs in the basin.

Oxy Permian will transfer some 'technical and administrative' workers to its Houston office.

Some other employees are choosing to receive a severance package, and look for new employment here locally.

A spokesperson says the company is always looking to run an efficient operation and sometimes that means consolodating its offices.

Oxy Permian employs about one-thousand people and has several thousand contractors.
