OSLO, Feb 18 (Reuters) – Norwegian oil and gas group StatoilHydro (STL.OL) cancelled on Wednesday a 3.8 billion crowns ($543.1 million) investment in its biggest North Sea field, Troll, because of low oil prices and high costs.

The initial budget for the project, which aims to boost oil recovery and maximise the value of gas production at the huge North Sea field, was almost 10 billion crowns, it said.

“The adjustments are necessary because of changes in framework conditions, such as lower oil prices and high costs,” StatoilHydro said in a statement.
