The study will outline how installation of electrical equipment on Troll B and C, as well as replacement from gas turbine to electrical driven compressors on Troll C can be performed. This will enable Equinor’s goal of supplying Troll B and C with electricity by power cables from Kollsnes outside Bergen on the west coast of Norway. The transition to onshore power could reduce CO2 emissions from Troll B and C by about 450,000 metric tons per year.

The FEED study for Troll B and C is expected to be delivered in the second half of 2020.

The Troll field lies about 65 kilometers outside Bergen on Norway’s west coast. The field has been operating since 1995 and represents about 40 percent of total gas reserves on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
