According to Equinor, a trade union has stepped up its strike on the Norwegian continental shelf from Sunday midnight. As a result of the escalation, the energy company has conducted a controlled closure of the fields Gudrun, Gina Krog, Kvitebjørn and Valemon.
A total of 54 members of the trade union Lederne will be on strike at Gudrun, Gina Krog and Kvitebjørn.
Equinor states that the Valemon field must be shut down because it is linked to Kvitebjørn.
At present, production at the Johan Sverdrup platform continues. 43 members of Lederne have been on strike there since Wednesday morning.
The strike is the result of a breach of mediation in the negotiations between the employer organisation Norwegian Oil and Gas Association (NOGA) and the trade union Lederne.
