LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) – Stone Energy, an oil and gas exploration company headquartered in Lafayette, has announced company-wide layoffs.

Florence Ziegler, Senior Vice President of Human Resources, told News 10 just under 50 positions will be cut.

The executive said the company had to make an adjustment to respond to the low cost of oil.

Positions are being cut across the board, including professional, administrative, and management positions.

Ziegler did not disclose how many people will lose their jobs at the Lafayette office but did say those employees were terminated on Monday.
