February 02, 2012

Feb. 2 (Bloomberg) -- ConocoPhillips said a strike by fuel truck drivers at its 221,000 barrel-a-day Humber refinery and nearby depot has been suspended.

Deliveries are as normal, Nina Stobart, a spokeswoman at the refinery said today in an e-mailed statement.

The strike over pay and conditions involving drivers from Wincanton Plc, a logistics company, began on Jan. 24. Wincanton transports about 20 percent of the fuel that leaves the terminal, Stobart said.
