April 27 (Bloomberg) — Royal Dutch Shell Plc said it expects a “seamless transition” when a cleaning contract ends at its Geelong oil refinery in Australia’s Victoria State at the end of the month.

Shell anticipates no impact on production, spokesman Paul Zennaro said by phone in Melbourne today. Fuel supplies could run out by the end of the week if 20 specialist decontamination cleaners at the refinery strike, the Australian Associated Press reported, citing Jess Walsh, a Liquor Hospitality and Miscellaneous Workers Union Victorian secretary.
