go with answer B.
The yield of natural gas from Norway’s Troil gas field is expected to increase annually until the year 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day, an extraction rate that will allow at least 50 years’ production
the conjunction "and" is essential and need to use "to stabilize" for llism with "to increase". the clause "which will allow" in A is incorrect.

The yield of natural gas from Norway’s Troll gas field is expected to increase

B. 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day, an
extraction rate that will allow at least

such an extraction rate at the least allowing

The yield of natural gas from Norway’s Troll gas field is expected to increase annually until the year 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day , which will allow such an extraction rate at least for 50 years’ production.
A. 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day, which will allow such an extraction rate at least for B. 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day, an extraction rate that will allow at least C. 2005 and then stabilizing at six billion cubic feet a day, with such an extraction rate at the least allowing D. 2005, then stabilizing at six billion cubic feet a day, allowing such an extraction rate for at least E. 2005, then stabilizing at six billion cubic feet a day, which will allow such an extraction rate for at least
B. I also prefer B over D.
"an extraction rate that will allow ........" clearly modifies the preceding clause "The yield of natural gas from Norway’s Troll gas field is expected (to increase annually until the year 2005 and then) to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day".

C, D, E are out - stabilizing is not in parallel with "to increase"
Close call between A & B.
A seems verbose but I think B is distorting the meaning of the clause.
However, I will go with B since it is the concise form of the sentence.
The yield of natural gas from Norway’s Troll gas field is expected to increase annually until the year 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day , which will allow such an extraction rate at least for 50 years’ production.
A. 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day, which
will allow such an extraction rate at least for (which modifies day=>OUT) B. 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day, an extraction rate that will allow at least (the last part modifies "six billion cubic feet a day"=>OK) C. 2005 and then stabilizing at six billion cubic feet a day, with such an extraction rate at the least allowing (a day, with=>OUT) D. 2005, then stabilizing at six billion cubic feet a day, allowing such an extraction rate for at least ("allow ..for" here is not appropriately used; "then stabilizing" lacks parallel antecendent; besides, "allowing" modifies "yield"=>wrong sence =>OUT) Allow for TIME/MONEY to plan to use a particular amount of money, time, etc for something Allow three hours for the whole journey. E. 2005, then stabilizing at six billion cubic feet a day, which will allow such an extraction rate for at least (which modifies day=>OUT)
The yield of natural gas from Norway’s Troll gas field is expected to increase annually until the year 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day , which will allow such an extraction rate at least for 50 years’ production.
A. 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day, which will allow such an extraction rate at least for B. 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day, an extraction rate that will allow at least C. 2005 and then stabilizing at six billion cubic feet a day, with such an extraction rate at the least allowing D. 2005, then stabilizing at six billion cubic feet a day, allowing such an extraction rate for at least -- participle allowing modifies the whole clause. E. 2005, then stabilizing at six billion cubic feet a day, which will allow such an extraction rate for at least
I picked D, which seems incorrect after reading other post.
Can someone please explain when we should use noun modifiers with relative pronouns, when to use prepositional modifier, when to use absolute phrase modifier and when to use gerund modifier?
For example:
The yield of natural gas from Norway’s Troll gas field is expected to increase annually until the year 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day , which will allow such an extraction rate at least for 50 years’ production.
A. 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day, which will allow such an extraction rate at least for B. 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day, an extraction rate that will allow at least C. 2005 and then stabilizing at six billion cubic feet a day, with such an extraction rate at the least allowing D. 2005, then stabilizing at six billion cubic feet a day, allowing such an extraction rate for at least E. 2005, then stabilizing at six billion cubic feet a day, which will allow such an extraction rate for at least
Despite other errors in the above choices, when should we use "which...", "with...", gerund ("allowing...") and absolute phrase ("an extraction...")?
