Origin Energy slashes 650 jobs

ABOUT 650 jobs will go from Origin Energy's Brisbane head office as the company attempts to slash costs.

The jobs to go will be in the people manager and mid-management section.

The decision comes as Origin attempts to progress its APLNG business to a steady state, after the construction and ramp up phases.

It is also determined to cut costs and bring about gas at less than $40 a barrel.

The job losses were announced to staff today along with a new business structure.

Origin said it had contained the job losses to Brisbane to maintain its presence in the regions which will be largely unaffected by the cuts.
