French authorities break blockade at Totalís Grandpuits refinery

October 22/2010

(ICIS) -- French authorities forced demonstrators to clear the blockade at Totalís Grandpuits refinery on Friday and ordered striking workers back to work as nationwide industrial action over pension reforms continued to cripple fuel supplies, reports said.


Totalís Grandpuits 100,000 bbl/day refinery, the closest source of gasoline supplies to Paris, has been shut in protest over president Nicolas Sarkozyís pension reform.


The industrial action, along with an unrelated strike at Marseilleís Fos-Lavera oil port, has forced all the countryís refineries to either operate at minimum levels or shut production altogether, causing massive supply disruptions and panic-buying at gasoline stations across France. As of Friday, about 20% of France"s service stations were still empty.
