IMPORTANT NORWEGIAN CRUDE ASSAYS UPDATED
Richard A. Corbett Refining/Petrochemical Editor New assays on two important Norwegian North Sea crude oils, Statfjord and Gullfaks, have updated earlier assays published by OGJ on June 6, 1983. Both are high-quality, low-sulfur crudes that will yield a full range of good-quality products. All assay data came from industry-standard test procedures (Table 1). The Statfjord field, operated by Statoil the Norwegian state oil company, is the largest in the North Sea. Production started in 1979.
