Statoil and partners have agreed to invest US $1.93B in the manufacture and installation of two compressors on theTroll A facility in the Troll license of the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.
The compressors, forming the final phase of the planned capacity expansion on Troll A, will allow production to proceed from the field until 2063. Considered a vital gas producer on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, Troll has a production capacity and lifetime that far exceeds those of the other NCS fields, stated Statoil. The company said that the new compressors also lead the way for the tie-in of gas from Toll West once the oil production comes to an end.
The compression phase of development on Troll, which will come on stream in 2015, will allow the facility to produce 120 MMcm/d until 2018, ensuring the ability to produce 30 Bcm annually until 2024.
Partners of Troll consist of Petoro (56%), Statoil (30.58%), Norske Shell (8.10%), Total (3.69%) and ConocoPhillips Skandinavia (1.62%).
