Norwegian union threatens strike at Statoil, Shell, Eni platforms

Staff Writer | June 8, 2017
About 150 oil platform workers would go on strike, potentially disrupting output from several Norwegian fields, if they fail to get a pay deal by midnight on Friday, their union said.

Lederne, the smallest of the three Norwegian unions representing oil industry workers, said the strike would target platforms at Eni's Goliat, Shell's Draugen and Statoil's Kvitebjoern, Oseberg East and Gudrun fields.

"We believe it would mean shutting down production on those platforms," a spokesman for the union said.

The five fields together produced 326,000 barrels of saleable oil equivalent per day in March, according to Reuters calculations based on the latest figures available for individual fields from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate.
