According to Reuters, French oil and gas company Total gradually shut its units at its 117,000 barrels/day Feyzin refinery and petrochemical platform near Lyon due to a strike, which stemmed from 190 workers and the management not being able to reach an agreement on bonuses and other issues.

Market sources reported that a 250,000 tons/year ethylene cracker is among the units that has been shut since May 9.

The reports revealed that when the strike will end is not yet known while Total said fuel and products shortage is out of question as they will continue to supply their customers from other sources.

The company has five refiners in France.
