What's the reason? I thought that such a route would be quite profitable. or amybe it isn't or do they need the a/c somewhere else?

The SVG-ABZ was one of SAS' most profitable, but the oil companies no longer spend as much money on travelling as they used to. Braathens and Wideroe is will continue to operate between Stavanger and Aberdeen.

The Heathrow service will only be reintroduced if they get more slots there, but I don't think that will happen.

How about they stick a 737 on SVG-NCL and try and get BU to go up to 737 again or force them off??

The planes used on the SVG-ABZ route are much needed on other routes on the SAS network.
The shift from mainly business passengers to mainly tourist pax has rendered the route not so profitable as to warrant the use of DC-9's or MD-80's on this route.A logical choice would be 737's but these are in fairly short supply at the moment and committed to other routes.
As for SVG-LHR,SAS is seeking all the time to get extra slots at LHR,but these will be for flights to and from the Scandinavian capital cities.

SVG-ABZ is mainly a business passengers route. Stavanger and Aberdeen are the largerst oil industry areas in Europe and the route is mainly used by people how work in the oil industry.
