(MENAFN) A prearranged strike by Norway's oil and gas sector employees is poised to have a considerable effect on gas trades, with decreases of more than 13 percent of the nation’s day-to-day gas exports, the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association (NOG) declared on Monday.

NOG stated that the Lederne union had previously given sign that it is going to take 74 members out on strike on Equinor's Gudrun, Oseberg South as well as Oseberg East offshore stages and that processes would blackout as an outcome of the strike.

The organization also declared that an additional delay of the strike had been informed for July 6, when 117 members of the Heidrun, Aasta Hansteen as well as Kristin offshore fields is going to go on stoppage.

NOG stated that "The result will be a daily loss of oil output totaling 130,000 barrels, while gas production will fall by 292,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day or 13 percent of the total for the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS)."
