JM Oil Field Services downsizing in the Eagle Ford Shale

Job cuts keep coming in the Eagle Ford as JM Oil Field Services (JMOS) laid off 150 or more workers Monday morning.

The news came to a surprise to employees operating at the company headquarters in Gonzales, Texas. As one source noted, many believed their jobs were secured thanks to an acquisition on behalf of Twin Peaks Field Services in May, 2015.

“We all gathered at the yard and they told us the news,” stated Marc, a former JMOS truck driver of the past three years whose last name is left out upon request. “There are a whole lot of families who were depending on these jobs.”

Marc said that maybe a big company in the area will pick up his job along with others. However, he noted that the work won’t feel the same.

JMOS has previously held operation in Three Rivers, Texas, Arkansas and Oklahoma. Many of these locations have either slowed down significantly or closed altogether.  In May, JMOS was recorded as having over 300 employees and operating approximately 130 trucks in the Eagle Ford Basin, Permian Basin and in Arkansas.

Other companies in the southern states continue their own layoffs. In the past week, Halliburton announced an undisclosed number of employees would be let go from its facility in Farmington, and Artesia, New Mexico.

A representative for JMOS could not be reached for comment.
