France's Total rejects force majeure notice from Chinese LNG buyer

ABERDEEN, Feb 6 (Reuters) - French oil major Total has rejected a force majeure notice from a buyer of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in China, a Total executive said during the company's full year results presentation on Thursday.

"Some Chinese customers, at least one, is trying to use the coronavirus to say I have force majeure," said Philippe Sauquet, head of Total's gas, renewables and power segment.

"We have received one force majeure that we have rejected."
