Statoil shuts in production from Troll C platform in North Sea

Statoil ASA has temporarily shut in production from its Troll C platform in the North Sea after inspectors detected corrosion damage in pipe connected to the oil export system.

The shutdown occurred on Aug. 17, the company said. The corroded pipe will be replaced during what is expected to be a 7-day shutdown.

Statoil said Troll C has equity oil production of 58,000 b/d and exports of 8 million cu m/day of gas. The Fram field is also affected, with 34,000 b/d and 2 million cu m/day of gas transported through Troll C.

Statoil shut Troll C in late 2012 due to corrosion in some tanks on the auxiliary system for treating gas (OGJ Online, Nov. 15, 2012).

Statoil has 30.58% interest in Troll C and 45% in Fram.

According to the Statoil web site, partners in Troll are Petoro 56%, Norske Shell 8.1%, Total E&P Norge 3.69%, and ConocoPhillips Skandinavia 1.62%. Partners in Fram are Idemitsu Petroleum Norge 15%, GDF Suez E&P Norge 15%, and ExxonMobil E&P Norway 25%.
