Norway Completes Troll Gas Field Maintenance Earlier than Planned


OSLO, Aug 4 (Reuters) – Norwegian gas system operator Gassco has completed a key round of maintenance over the weekend, earlier than planned, and work has only minor consequences for gas flows it said on Monday.

The maintenance, which was expected to reduce output by 124 million cubic metres per day, was scheduled for Aug 5-6.

Although Gassco did not name the field under maintenance, it likely involved Statoil's Troll, the country's biggest gas field.

The outage had been rescheduled several times as work was depended on good weather conditions.
