The agency stated that Norwegian oil and gas workers went on strike Tuesday night in protest over lower pay. On Tuesday, the Norwegian government took action to put an end to the strike.

The strike, according to the union’s head in Norway, has ended. As soon as feasible, workers will resume their jobs, Lederne's CEO informed Reuters.

According to the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association (NOG), three fields were shut down on Tuesday due to a strike organized by Lederne. Three further fields might have shut down on Wednesday as well.

According to the Norwegian Oil and Gas Employers' Lobby, by Saturday the strike would have lowered daily gas exports by 1.12 million barrels of oil equivalent, or 56 percent of daily gas exports, and lost 341,000 barrels of oil.
