OSLO Nov 15 (Reuters) - Norwegian oil and gas firm Statoil shut its massive Troll C oil and gas platform after discovering corrosion in the auxiliary system for gas treatment, it said on Thursday.

Troll C has a daily production of around 120,000 barrels of oil and 10.5 million cubic metres of gas.

"During a scheduled inspection on the platform corrosion was discovered on a tank in the glycol system, which is an auxiliary system for treating gas on the platform," Statoil said.
