HOUMA, Louisiana — National Oilwell Varco, a manufacturer and parts supplier to the oil and gas industry, is shutting down its facility in Houma, Louisiana, and that will put 80 employees out of work.

The Louisiana Workforce Commission tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/1S41moN) the layoffs at the facility started Monday, and will continue in phases until NOV shuts down sometime between March 7 and March 21.

State officials say they will provide re-employment services to the affected employees, including information on unemployment benefits, résumé help and job-searching tools. Houston-based NOV said it will provide workers with additional pay and benefits because they were unable to provide sufficient notice of the closure "due to economic reasons."
