(Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell has postponed an innovative project to provide subsea gas compression on Norway’s Ormen Lange field, one of the biggest gas fields in Europe, it said on Friday. “The oil and gas industry has a cost challenge,” Shell said in a statement. “This, in combination with the maturity and complexity of the concepts and the production volume uncertainty, makes the project no longer economically feasible.”
