UPDATE 2-Shell oil workers in Gabon begin “unlimited” strike on Thursday

UPDATE 2-Shell oil workers in Gabon begin “unlimited” strike on Thursday

(Updates with Shell reaction)
LIBREVILLE, Jan 12 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell workers in Gabon began an “unlimited” strike on Thursday at all the company’s operations in the Central African OPEC member country, the workers’ union wrote in a letter to employees.
Shell is in advanced talks to sell its Gabon assets, which one source estimated could be worth $700 million, leaving workers worried about layoffs or being moved to new locations, the union said. The national union of petroleum employees (ONEP) said the strike “will cover all of Shell Gabon’s operations (Libreville, Port-Gentil, Gamba Rabi, Koula and Toucan).”
Shell, which produces about 55,000 barrels of oil per day in Gabon, confirmed the announcement of the strike but declined to say if it had had an impact on production. It operates the Gamba export terminal through which an additional 20,000 barrels from other producers are also exported.
“Our local management team in Gabon is engaged in mediation with the Ministry of Labour and the union ONEP relating to impacts on employees from our advanced negotiations with a potential buyer,” a Shell spokesman said.
The union demanded in December that all Shell Gabon employees be transferred to whichever company takes on Shell’s assets, and that no redundancies were made for economic reasons within five years of the deal.
Gabon is Africa’s fourth largest oil producer with an output of around 220,000 barrels per day dominated by international oil majors Total and Shell.

(Adds background, quote from union)
LIBREVILLE, Jan 12 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell workers in Gabon began on Thursday an “unlimited” strike at all the company’s operations in the Central African OPEC member country, the workers’ union wrote in a letter to employees.
Shell is trying to sell its Gabon assets, which one source estimated could be worth $700 million, leaving workers worried about layoffs or being moved to new locations, the union said. The national union of petroleum employees (ONEP) said the strike “will cover all of Shell Gabon’s operations (Libreville, Port-Gentil, Gamba Rabi, Koula and Toucan).”
There was no immediate response from Shell, and it was not clear if oil production was impacted.

LIBREVILLE, Jan 12 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell workers in Gabon on Thursday began an “unlimited” strike on all operations in the Central African OPEC member, the oil workers union wrote in a letter to employees.
There was no immediate response from Shell, and the cause of the strike was not immediately clear. But the union in December called for better financial packages for employees and threatened to down tools.
