Troll Further Development stopped

19/10/2007 The Ministry of Petroleum and Energy will not approve the Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) for Troll Further Development (TFD). This is stated in a letter from the Ministry to the Troll licensees dated 18 October 2007.

The plans to further develop Troll are based on increased gas production. This will reduce the opportunity to recover large amounts of oil from the field. The Ministry's decision is based on advice from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate.
