PARIS (Thomson Financial) – Total, Royal Dutch Shell, Exxon Mobil unit Esso and Total division Elf are all to appear in court on Sept 25 charged with dangerous storage and handling of kerosene fuel at Nice Airport in southern France, legal sources told Agence France-Presse.

According to the public prosecutor, the companies have kept some of their fuel in storage trucks on the airport’s tarmac, in view of a lack of capacity at the airport’s storage facilities.

The local chamber of commerce is also being prosecuted for allegedly allowing this situation to occur.

The defendants face fines of 375,000 eur each.
