CALGARY – Oil company Cenovus announced on Thursday more job cuts are in store amid a fourth-quarter loss of $480.3 million.

According to Cenovus, the company plans to “further reduce its workforce,” which had already been slashed by 24 per cent by the end of 2015. The cuts left Cenovus with a total of about 4,000 staff.

Cenovus also said it plans to “adjust its discretionary spending and compensation programs.”

“The company is undertaking a thorough evaluation of all its staffing costs to align total compensation with the current business environment.”

Cenovus said the company’s president/CEO and four other highest paid executives will see their cash compensation, which was previously reduced in 2015, further reduced.
