Total CEO: Gas Production in Yemen Almost Normal



PARIS(Dow Jones Newswires), March 28, 2011

Total continues to produce liquefied natural gas in Yemen at close to normal levels, Chief Executive Christophe de Margerie said Monday.

Like a number of other countries in the region, Yemen is in political crisis with protests against the regime there.

Total's priority in the country is the safety of its workers and its installations, de Margerie told reporters, adding that it will produce there for "as long as we can."

The company currently is producing "almost normally," he said, without elaborating.
