TotalEnergies Feyzin, France Refinery Hit by Fire

Reuters, October 4, 2021

French oil major TotalEnergies' Feyzin refinery was hit by a fire overnight, but the fire has been rapidly brought under control and nobody has been hurt, the company said in a statement on Monday.

It added that certain units at the site near Lyon will have to adapt their activity but that the company will continue to ensure supply to its network of gas stations and to its customers.

A CGT union official had said earlier that refining activities at the site would be halted in the next 24 to 48 hours following a major fire overnight.
