Equinor has said that the trade union Lederne has stepped up its strike on the Norwegian continental shelf from Sunday midnight. As a result of the escalation, Equinor has conducted a controlled closure of the Gudrun, Gina Krog, Kvitebjørn and Valemon fields.

A total of 54 members of the trade union Lederne will be on strike at Gudrun, Gina Krog and Kvitebjørn. The Valemon field must be shut down because it is linked to Kvitebjørn.

Production at the Johan Sverdrup platform continues for the present. 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 and Lederne.
