'This adds a new chapter to the amazing Troll story. The field has an important part in our plans to transform the Norwegian continental shelf for sustainable value creation for several decades,' says Gunnar Nakken, Equinor's senior vice president for Operations West.
'Troll is the biggest gas producer on the NCS, meeting 7-8% of Europe's total daily gas consumption. We will deliver safe, profitable and carbon-efficient energy from Troll that helps reduce coal consumption and reduce CO2 emissions in Europe with a long-term perspective beyond 2050,' says Nakken.
The development of Troll phase 3 is also important for Norwegian supply industry. About 70 % of the value creation will take place in Norway.
The partnership has awarded contracts within marine installations and subsea facilities totalling an estimated NOK 950 million to the companies Nexans, Deep Ocean, IKM, Allseas and Marubeni. In addition, the partnership has awarded contracts worth approximately NOK 2 billion for subsea facilities and the construction of a new processing module on the Troll A platform to Aker Solutions.
Troll partners: Equinor (30.58% - operator), Petoro (56%), Norske Shell (8.10%), Total E&P Norge (3.69%), ConocoPhillips Skandinavia (1.62%)
