Galp Says Its Two Refineries Not Affected by Portugal Strike

March 22 (Bloomberg) -- Galp Energia SGPS SA, Portugal’s biggest oil company, said its two refineries haven’t been affected by a strike in the country.

“Both of our refineries are operating normally,” Pedro Marques Pereira, a company spokesman based in Lisbon, said today by phone.

A strike against government austerity measures and labor-market reforms halted metro and some ferry services in the Portuguese capital as thousands of commuters risked being stranded.

Workers at Galp’s Matosinhos and Sines refineries will probably join the one-day strike, Diario Economico reported March 20, without saying how it got the information. Unions representing some of Galp’s workers at the two plants didn’t respond to two phone calls today.

The Matosinhos refinery in Oporto can process about 90,000 barrels of oil a day while the Sines refinery has a 220,000-barrel-a-day capacity.
