    Halliburton to move jobs from Duncan to Houston

    DUNCAN — Officials with Halliburton Co. say about 150 jobs at the Halliburton Technology Center in Duncan will be moved to Houston during the next two years.

    Halliburton spokeswoman Diana Gabriel says the move is part of a plan to consolidate operations at company headquarters in Houston. The jobs being moved include chemists and engineers.

    The technology center currently has about 400 employees. Gabriel says there are no plans to remove or reduce the remaining 250 or so workers in Duncan.

    Halliburton was founded in Duncan by Erle Halliburton in 1919 and has become one of the world's largest providers of products and services to the oil and gas industry. The company moved its corporate headquarters to Houston in 2003 from Dallas where it had been since 1961.

    This makes me sick...is there really that much benefit to being in Houston? I know, there's a lot of energy companies there but so what.....in this day and age, there doesn't seem to be the need to be geographically close to each other.

    In fact, one could argue that with the higher cost of office space in Houston compared to Duncan, that they will be losing money with this move.

    I would sure like to see more Oklahoma companies staying here.
