Equinor begins production from Troll phase 3 project in North Sea

02 Sep 2021

Equinor and its partners have started production from the NOK8bn (US$926.45m) Troll phase 3 project in the Norwegian North Sea.

The phase 3 project saw the development of the large gas reserves contained in the western part of the Troll field. It is expected to extend the production of the offshore Norwegian field to 2050 and beyond.

According to Equinor, the recoverable volumes from the phase 3 development are estimated to be 347bn cubic metres of gas or 2.2bn barrels of oil equivalent.

The gas produced from the Troll phase 3 project is sent to the Troll A platform and subsequently into the existing infrastructure.

Equinor said that the phase 3 project has a break-even price under US$10 and less than 0.1kg per barrel of oil equivalent of CO2 emissions.

The Troll phase 3 project saw the drilling of eight wells in two templates. The project also involved laying a new pipeline and an umbilical to connect the templates to the Troll A platform.

A new gas processing module was also installed on Troll A as part of the project.

A plan for development and operation (PDO) of the project was approved by the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy in December 2018.
