CARACAS, Venezuela, Mar 16 (Reuters) Venezuelan tax authorities have closed the administrative offices of French oil company Total and Italian operator ENI for 48 hours due to book-keeping irregularities, an official said today.

Venezuela, the world's No. 5 oil exporter, has briefly shut the offices of scores of foreign and local firms as part of a broad crackdown on tax irregularities.

The administrative closures usually do not affect production facilities.
