Here is update on French Nationwide strike on impact to Oil Refining where only 1 out 12 plants are operating normally. The strike is in its 18th day & has previously hit French Gas, Nuclear & Power industry, along with French Ports with same impact now reported in oil sector. Even if refineries were operating normally Ports like Marseille oil terminals are blocked from getting crude. As article mentions France never got its Strategic reserves back after 2006 US Katrina Huricane impact caused depetion – so even shift mentioned to other regions to offset Strike will have Crude & Diesel impacts in EU & US domestic and export markets.
