Statoil Says to Cut Cost of Castberg Field by Another NOK 4B
HAMMERFEST, Norway, April 20 (Reuters) - Norwegian oil major Statoil plans to cut the estimated cost of developing its Arctic Johan Castberg oilfield by another 4 billion Norwegian crowns ($491.53 million), project director Erik Strand Tellefsen told an energy conference on Wednesday.
In January Statoil announced it had cut the cost of developing Castberg to between 50-60 billion Norwegian crowns from an initial estimate of around 100 billion.
"Our ambition is to cut by a further four billion," Strand Tellefsen said.
Norway's state-owned Petoro and Italy's ENI are partners in the field.
