Troll field celebrates two decades of production

Statoil marked 20 years this week since the start of oil production from the Troll field which has been Norway’s largest oil producer for the last three years. In the past two decades more than one billion barrels has been produced with an income of NOK460billion. The Troll oil and gas adventure started with the awarding of the fourth licensing round in 1979. In July of that year, Borgny Dolphin began exploration drilling and four months later Troll was a fact.
