Risk of Johan Sverdrup shutdown from union strike action
7 October 2020
Lundin Energy AB (Lundin Energy) announces that due to the ongoing strike action by the Norwegian labour union Lederne, there is a risk that the Johan Sverdrup field will have to temporarily shut down production upon the next crew rotation on 14 October 2020.
It is hoped that the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association (NOROG) and Lederne, in the intervening period, may reach a settlement and avert a temporary shutdown of Johan Sverdrup.
None of Lundin Energy’s other producing fields have been impacted by the Lederne strike action.
