PARIS (Reuters) - Total (TOTF.PA) is still trying to identify the specific cause of a gas leak at its Elgin platform, a spokesman for the company said on Wednesday.

“We have not precisely identified the cause of the incident,” he said.

He added that a solution was still being evaluated and that it “ is a question of days” to find one.

The French firm had warned on Tuesday it could take six months to halt the flow.
