Strike at Port Jerome refinery extended to March 29 - union

PARIS, March 27 (Reuters) - The industrial action against the French government's pension reforms disrupting the 240,000 barrel-per-day (bpd) Port Jerome refinery, one of the largest in France, has been extended until March 29, the CGT union said in a tweet.

A spokesperson for operator Esso, ExxonMobil's (XOM) French unit, said Friday the company had been forced to halt production at the refinery due to the impact the strikes had had on delivering crude from the Le Havre terminal. (Reporting by Forrest Crellin; Editing by Jan Harvey)
