Total fined by Denmark for discharging chemicals into North Sea


Denmark has fined French oil and gas firm Total DKK500,000 ($75,100) for discharging chemicals into the North Sea.

According to Danish broadcaster DR, the Danish environmental protection agency reported Maersk Oil, the former oil exploration arm of A.P. Moller-Maersk for conducting the activities in 2017.

Maersk Oil was taken over by Total for $7.45bn in August 2017.

“The lack of compliance is both regrettable and unacceptable,” a spokeswoman for Total told DR.
