Refinery prepares for shutdown over strike

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.

“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 company’s website.
