[1/6] French energy workers on strike gather with dockers near tyres set on fire as they protest against French government's pension reform plan, in the port of Saint-Nazaire, France, January 26, 2023.
An Elabe poll for BFM showed 72% of the French are against the pension reform.
"Oil workers are against this (pension) reform but they don't want to be on the front line," said a CGT union representative for Exxonmobil.
A spokesperson for Esso, whose two French refinery sites are run by ExxonMobil (XOM.N), said only truck loading operations were suspended at Fos, with everything else operating normally.
A union representative added that production at the Port Jerome site was slightly impacted.
