K2 Radio News reported Friday that the Casper office of the Halliburton Company will be closing.

After several calls to the company's headquarters in Houston, we finally got this email statement on Monday...
"Due to current market conditions, Halliburton continues to monitor its operations in Casper, WY. Halliburton will maintain a presence in the area and will further evaluate its operations based on customer needs."

Despite the non-committal nature of the statement, we stand by our reporting, and will bring you more information as it becomes available. We do not know the time frame for the closure or the effect on local jobs.
