GREELEY, Colo. — Noble Energy is moving 100 employees out of its Denver headquarters.
The Greeley Tribune reported (http://bit.ly/2sEd70j ) Wednesday that employees will have the option of relocating, mostly to the independent oil and natural gas company’s main headquarters in Houston and some in Greeley.
Noble Energy, the second-largest oil and gas drilling company in Colorado, has about 770 employees in Colorado — 300 in Denver and 470 in Greeley.
The employee shuffle comes on the heels of a $1.2 billion sale of the company’s Marcellus Shale assets in May.
The Marcellus sale brings the company’s total sales for the year to $2 billion and will help cover the costs of acquiring Clayton Williams Energy Inc., according to company documents. That deal was a $2.7 billion acquisition.
