Suncor Energy Withdrawing From Syria

Suncor Energy (SU.TO) reported today that it has declared force majeure under its contractual obligations and is suspending its operations with the General Petroleum Corporation in Syria. These actions are taken as a result of sanctions on Syria announced by the European Union on Dec. 2, 2011.
