Statoil Makes Record Gas Sales

On January 13, 2002, Statoil supplied a total of 137 million cubic meters of gas to customers in Europe. This is approximately 20 million cubic meters more than the record set last winter.

In addition to own volumes, the sale includes the state's gas, which Petoro administers. Over half of the gas, about 68 million cubic meters, was delivered through the Europipe and Norpipe trunklines to Germany. From there, some of the gas was sent on to other countries. Most of the gas was supplied from the Statoil-operated Troll and Sleipner fields in the North Sea.
