Statoil shut down production on the Troll C platform in the North Sea on Sunday 17 August after an inspection programme on the platform detected corrosion damage to a pipe connected to the oil export system.

The corroded pipe will be replaced. This is expected to require a 7-day shutdown.

Troll C has a daily equity production of some 58 000 barrels of oil , and exports 8 million cubic metres of gas. 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.
