An ongoing labor strike could shutter Equinor’s flagship Johan Sverdrup field


Equinor’s Johan Sverdrup offshore platform will have to close production until further notice if an ongoing labor strike continues into next week, the Norwegian supermajor said in a statement.

The strike has seen offshore workers’ union Lederne has removed 43 of its members from Johan Sverdrup so far, which has not yet impacted production. The recently-commissioned facility will produce 690,000 barrels of oil per day when it reaches full capacity in 2022.

Equinor says that if the strike is still underway during a crew change scheduled for October 14th, production will be shut in due to lack of personnel to execute key operational tasks.
