Norwegian drilling workers have ended their strike action after a deal was reached with employers.
A Norwegian oil and gas union is stepping up a six-day strike today after employers did not respond to demands, according to Reuters.
A strike curtailed oil production off Norway for the first time in six years as Royal Dutch Shell Plc shut a North Sea field and workers threatened to escalate labor action at the weekend.
Norway has given Shell permission to take the emergency response vessel off the Knarr field.
An audit carried out on Shell’s Knarr FPSO vessel have found a number of non-conformities.
Oil major Shell has been given the green-light for taking over the operatorship of Knarr and Gaupe from BG Norge.
The Petroleum Safety Authority in Norway has started an investigation into a fire which broke out on the Petrojarl Knarr FPSO (floating production, storage and offloading) vessel. The incident halted production temporarily and happened only one week after it had begun.
