​SAN ANTONIO - Three oil and gas service companies recently told the Texas Workforce Commission about mass layoffs in San Antonio and Robstown—both cities outside of the South Texas shale field that have served as a base for oil field staging and services.

CalFrac Well Services in San Antonio will lay off 87 workers by May 1.

Cudd Energy Services already laid off 60 workers at its Tacco Dr. facility in San Antonio on March 11.

And C&J Energy Services will lay off 87 employees at its facility in Robstown.

C&J Energy Services has announced other big layoffs in the region—in February, the company said it will lay off 78 workers at its Pleasanton facility in Atascosa County by April 4.

Around 72,000 Texas workers lost jobs in the energy industry in 2015, and the Texas Alliance of Energy Producers estimates that another 40,000 could lose jobs this year—roughly 10,000 workers each quarter.
