MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Houston-based oil field services company Halliburton is suspending operations at its facility in Minot and transferring many of the jobs there to locations in Williston and Dickinson.

Spokeswoman Susie McMichael says the company will shut down the Minot facility on April 1 due to “changing business needs from its customers.”

Halliburton isn’t saying how many of the Minot employees will be transferred or laid off.

The company said in February that it planned to cut up to 6,400 jobs worldwide in response to low oil prices.
