DeepWell Energy Services in Buckhannon will be laying off up to 177 employees in its traffic control department after September 1. The Human Resource Manager says the layoffs have to do with the loss of a contract bid and not a change in the industry.

This is the second large layoff in the natural gas industry in Buckhannon in a little over a month. In July Weatherford announced it would be laying off nearly 150 people.
