The plan for development and operation for electrifying Troll Vest was submitted to the Minister of Petroleum and Energy on 23 April. The plan covers electrification of the Troll B and C platforms in the North Sea. Annual emission reductions will be close to half a million tonnes of CO2
, corresponding to more than three per cent of the petroleum industry's emissions on the Norwegian shelf and about one per cent of total emissions in Norway. NOX
emissions from the field will be reduced by about 1,700 tonnes per year.
