The 240,000-barrels-per-day Port Jerome-Gravenchon oil refinery in France, operated by ExxonMobil, is producing less fuel because of strike action at the plant, Exxon told Reuters on Wednesday.

French trade unions called for the strike due to disagreements over wage negotiations with ExxonMobil. The industrial action at the Port Jerome-Gravenchon refinery and the Notre Dame de Gravenchon (NDG) petrochemical site was called on Tuesday evening.

According to Exxon, both refinery and petrochemical operations are hit by reduced production, and truck loading of fuels is also affected.
