Shell says Pernis oil refinery strike having significant impact

April 12/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Royal Dutch Shell said a strike over wages was having a significant impact at its 400,000 barrel per day Pernis oil refinery and the Moerdijk petrochemical plant, reported Reuters.

Dutch trade union FNV said on Monday production at Europes biggest refinery will be gradually reduced to 65% of capacity.

"The actions (are) significant in many ways, short-term and longer-term, and we are disappointed in the heaviness and size of the actions already from the start," a spokeswoman said.

"(The salaries of) those that register themselves as actioners will be cut by a percentage I cant specify further. Again, this is to support the majority of the workers that are work-willing and that are impacted by the actions as well."

The wage reductions will be implemented as early as this afternoon for as long as the strike continues, she said, declining to give more details.

As MRC wrote previously, in May 2018. China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) and Shell Nanhai B.V. (Shell) announced the official start-up of the second ethylene cracker at their Nanhai petrochemicals complex in Huizhou, Guangdong Province, China.

Royal Dutch Shell plc is incorporated in England and Wales, has its headquarters in The Hague and is listed on the London, Amsterdam, and New York stock exchanges. Shell companies have operations in more than 70 countries and territories with businesses including oil and gas exploration and production; production and marketing of liquefied natural gas and gas to liquids; manufacturing, marketing and shipping of oil products and chemicals and renewable energy projects.
