ExxonMobil prepares for shutdown refinery in France over strike

June 10/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Exxon Mobil Corp said that its Fos-sur-Mer refinery in France is preparing to shut down units after two unions called for a strike action over pay and bonus disputes, reported Reuters.

"For safety reasons the refinery is preparing the shutdown process," the company said, adding shutdown may take a few days.

Fos-sur-Mer refinery has a capacity of 140,000 barrels per day, according to the companys website.

As MRC wrote earlier, in October 2017, ExxonMobil Chemical Company  commenced production on the first of two new 650,000 tons-per-year high-performance polyethylene (PE) lines at its plastics plant in Mont Belvieu, Texas. The full project, part of the companys multi-billion dollar expansion project in the Baytown area and ExxonMobils broader Growing the Gulf expansion initiative, will increase the plants polyethylene capacity by approximately 1.3 million tons per year.

ExxonMobil is the largest non-government owned company in the energy industry and produces about 3% of the world's oil and about 2% of the world's energy.
