Oil&Gas:Temporary shutdown on Troll C

Production on the Troll C platform in the North Sea has been temporarily halted pending further investigation of corrosion found in the auxiliary system for gas treatment.

A similar tank in a parallel gas treatment system is currently being checked.

Troll C production has been temporarily stopped pending the investigation results.
