16:24 GMT - France's Total SA says it will stop selling fuel oil for electricity in five years as part of its plans to improve its environmental credentials and influence the customers it sells products to. "We have decided, to influence the demand, that we will not sell any more fuel oil to power generation worldwide from 2025, so we'll give five years to our customers to find alternative solutions," says chief executive Patrick Pouyanne. Speaking on a call with analysts, Pouyanne says the company aims to be carbon neutral in Europe by 2050. (sarah.mcfarlane@wsj.com)
