Pipeline Corrosion Shutters Statoil's Troll C Platform
Norway's Statoil shut oil and gas production at its Troll C platform in the North Sea after inspections found corrosion damage on a pipeline, the company said in a statement on its website on Wednesday.
The platform was shut on Sunday and the repair is expected to take seven days, Statoil said.
"Troll C has a daily equity production of some 58,000 barrels of oil, and exports 8 million cubic metres of gas," Statoil said. "In addition some 34,000 barrels of oil and 2 million cubic metres of gas are transported from the Fram field through the Troll C platform."
