ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. said Wednesday it will eliminate about 150 staff jobs.
In coming months, the company also will be reducing contract support by about 150 positions.
The reductions in staff positions will take place at the company's offices in Anchorage, Fairbanks and Valdez.
The jobs will be eliminated by the end of the year, and will come primarily from administrative, management and support positions, company officials said.
Alyeska President and CEO David Wright said the company wants to eliminate duplication between the three offices in an effort to reduce costs.
Of the 150 positions being eliminated, about 50 are in Valdez, 60 are in Fairbanks and 40 are in Anchorage. Some jobs will be moved from Valdez to Anchorage and Fairbanks.
Wright said eliminating the jobs should make the company more competitive.
