Exxon Mobil Says French Refineries Could Take 2-3 Weeks To Fully Restart
10.18.2022 By Ella Keskin - NEWS

October 18, 2022 [Reuters] – Exxon Mobil’s 140,000 barrel per day (bpd) fos-Sur-Mer and 240,000 bpd Port Jerome-Gravenchon oil refineries in France could take 2-3 weeks to fully restart after shutdowns caused by strikes, a company spokesperson said on Tuesday.

 

Strike action over pay at the two refineries, which resulted in a three-week closure, ended late last week.

This has allowed Exxon to begin restarting the plants.

The outages, coupled with walkouts at oil major TotalEnergies (TTEF.PA), contributed to supply problems at French petrol stations and resulted in growing queues of motorists worried about supply disruption.

A nationwide strike in France on Tuesday has not affected the restart of Exxon’s refineries, the spokesperson said.
