Background

The pipeline system transports oil from the Troll Oil And Gas Field to Mongstad. It consists of two pipelines: Troll Oil Pipeline I, commissioned in 1995, and Troll Pipeline II, commissioned in 1999.[1] The licenses of both pipelines expires in 2023.[2][3]

In its first 20 years of oil production, the Troll oil field produced 1.56 billion barrels, generating NOK 460 billion in income.[4]
