Suncor Energy declared force majeure under its contractual obligations and is suspending operations with the General Petroleum Corp. (GPC) in Syria, the company said on Monday.

Suncor Energy declared force majeure under its contractual obligations and is suspending operations with the General Petroleum Corp. (GPC) in Syria, the company said on Monday.

These actions are taken as a result of sanctions on Syria announced by the European Union on Dec. 2.

The company said it is working through a plan to safely withdraw its expatriates while retaining its Syrian employees and determining how itcan best support Syrian employees during this time.

"We've been monitoring developments in the region very closely during the last several months, and we've always been clear that we would comply with all relevant sanctions imposed on the country," said Rick George, Suncor CEO.

"The current situation in Syria is very concerning, and our thoughts are with the Syrian people as we hope for a return to peace as soon as possible,” he added.

Suncor management is not changing total production guidance (2011 or 2012) because Libyan production is ramping up and was not included in the existing guidance, according to the company.
