Norway's Kollsnes Gas Plant to be Partially Shut in May and Sept

Reuters, December 19, 2016

Norway's largest gas processing plant Kollsnes will be partially shut from May 6-20, and from Sept. 2-20 next year, gas system operator Gassco said on Friday, announcing its 2017 maintenance plans. The plant is located in western Norway and processes gas from the country's biggest offshore field, Troll, a key gas supply source for Western Europe. The partial shutdown will reduce the plant's total daily production capacity of 144.5 million cubic metres (mcm) by 38.5 million cubic metres. Both the plant and the Troll field will be shut completely for one day on May 15, Gassco added.
