Hydro says that the shutdown is needed to facilitate the removal of a deflector plate from the platform's flare system. The offshore operator made the decision based on findings that emerged following an incident on the Visund platform earlier this year.
The deflector plate on Troll C is similar to the one that was on Visund, and the company is treating the pending replacement as corrective maintenance.
Troll C normally produces approximately 130,000 barrels of oil per day and 12 million cubic meters of gas.
