The firm, which operates five of France’s seven refineries, nine depots, and 2,200 petrol stations, said the depots and four refineries were still blocked. The refineries were still operating.

“There are some difficulties in supplying petrol stations particularly in Paris and the Ile-de-France region,” a spokesman said.
