Troll B Has up to 10 Years of Oil Producing Life Left

The Troll B platform in the North Sea still has another 8 to 10 years of oil producing life, according to a statement from Statoil.

Troll B has produced one billion barrels of oil equivalent since it came on-stream on Sept. 19, 1995. The platform, along with Troll C, have had the largest combined oil producing record on the Norwegian Continental Shelf for the last three years.

“After 20 years of production Troll will probably be the highest oil producing field on the NCS for the fourth year in a row,” Lars Høier, vice president of Troll operations, said.

“Troll B is delivering high regularity and good HSE results, and this is the result of dedicated employees doing a fantastic job every day, both offshore and onshore," he added.
