Norway unions, rig owners to work overtime in bid to avert oil industry strike

OSLO, June 27 (Reuters) - Norwegian labour unions and oil rig owners will extend pay talks past a midnight deadline in a bid to prevent the outbreak of a strike, negotiators said late on Thursday.

Almost 1,600 workers are set to go on strike on Friday if the talks are unsuccessful, cutting some of Norway's crude output and paralysing exploration.

The deadline for reaching a deal had originally been set to midnight on Thursday (2200 GMT). (Reporting by Terje Solsvik, editing by Gwladys Fouche)
