SINGAPORE, Sept 12 (Reuters) – Norway’s Equinor loaded the first crude oil cargo from the Mariner field on Sept. 4, company officials said, adding the cargo would land in Europe.

The 320,000-barrel Mariner Blend crude cargo has been sold at a discount to dated Brent, the officials said late on Wednesday.

Equinor started production from the Mariner field in the British North Sea in mid August. (Reporting by Florence Tan and Julia Payne; Additional reporting by Nidhi Verma and Shu Zhang; Editing by Mark Potter)
