Oil&Gas:Temporary shutdown on Troll C

Production on the Troll C platform in the North Sea has been temporarily halted pending further investigation of corrosion found in the auxiliary system for gas treatment.

During a scheduled inspection on the platform corrosion was discovered on a tank in the glycol system, which is an auxiliary system for treating gas on the platform.

A similar tank in a parallel gas treatment system is currently being checked.

Troll C production has been temporarily stopped pending the investigation results.

An expert team has been formed to determine further action and work scope.
