Statoil to invest NOK 40 billion at Snoehvit to maintain production
Posted : Tuesday, 02 October 2012 06:39AM
OSLO (Reuters) - Norway's Statoil <STL.OL> will invest about 40 billion Norwegian crowns ($6.99 billion) in the upcoming development phases at its Snoehvit natural gas field in the Arctic to maintain production until 2040, a spokesman said on Tuesday.
Statoil said earlier on Tuesday it had dropped its plans to expand its Snoehvit field due to insufficient reserves.
