"We are focusing on finding the cause of the leakage and prepare for repairing. We are still working on that," Equinor spokesman Morten Eek said.

The Equinor-operated field in the Norwegian Sea has capacity of up to 23.2 million cubic metres of gas per day.

Equinor's partners in the field are OMV, Wintershall and ConocoPhillips.
