BP Solar closings in Maryland county could mean more jobs in Houston

BP is closing a post in Maryland and potentially moving workers to Houston, where the company is headquartered.Recently, BP Solar announced that it plans to close its offices in Frederick County, Maryland, which could put as many as 80 workers out of jobs.BP Solar spokesperson Peter Resler announced that the company will end its operations in the region by early 2012. The move is part of the company's restructuring in the country as well as its adjustment for its alternative energy operations.While a significant number of workers may lose their jobs, some may be moved to the company's headquarters in Houston. The number of those potentially moving to the region has not been relayed, however.This announcement continues a previous trend set by BP Solar, as it eliminated 320 jobs at the Frederick County location in March when it relocated its manufacturing operations to other countries.Despite the cuts, the Houston real estate market could experience a boost in activity if workers are indeed shifted to the region.Houston's job sector has experienced it own cuts lately, as NASA is currently shutting down its shuttle program, which could eliminate as many as 1,000 positions.Courtesy of 2M Realty News
