PARIS (Reuters) - Oil and gas major Total said on Friday it had begun the restart of its 253,000 barrel-per-day Gonfreville refinery in France’s Normandy region after unions suspended a week-long strike that disrupted output and deliveries.

A Total spokeswoman said deliveries from its refineries and depots had resumed on Friday.

France’s CGT union suspended the strike on Thursday evening.
