Norwegian oil sector strike hits six fields

Oil fields Gjøa, Vega, Kvitebjørn, Gina Krog, Gudrun and Valemon are now all impacted by the ongoing labor dispute, says Norwegian Oil & Gas. Domestic output stands to fall by 330,000 bpd due to the strikes.

There will be consequences for oil and gas production on the Norwegian continental shelf now that labor union Lederne and trade association Norwegian Oil & Gas have failed to reach an accord on staff wages. Now as many as 172 oil sector workers are reportedly to be ready to go on strike.

Lederne has already removed 43 of its members from the Johan Sverdrup field, but as of midnight Sunday, the union also plans to send 18 working members from fields Gudrun, Gina Krog and Kvitebjørn – as well as the associated Valmon field – on strike, Norwegian Oil & Gas informs in a media release Friday.
