Statoil: New Compressors Boost Gas Recovery at Troll A

Two giant compressors that started up on the Troll A platform offshore Norway earlier this month will ensure a daily export capacity of 4.23 billion cubic feet of gas from the Troll field, according to Statoil.

The compressors will help the Troll field meet its long-term production profile, currently extending to 2063. They are operated by land-based power from Kollsnes west of Bergen, ensuring zero emissions of carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxides from the platform. During the past 18 months Statoil has started up low-pressure compressors on Troll A, Kvitebjørn, Heidrun, Kristin, Åsgard and Gullfaks, which has increased the recovery rate of the installations by more than 1.2 billion barrels and has extended their lives.

Gunnar Nakken, a senior vice president at Statoil, commented in a company statement:

“This is a new strategic milestone for the Troll field. The compressors are an important investment to ensure sustainable, long-term production and activity on the Norwegian continental shelf.”
