Oil&Gas: Hammerfest LNG back online

Statoil’s LNG plant at Hammerfest is back online as planned after being shut down since 14 October for maintenance.

The plant receives large amounts of natural gas from the Snøhvit field which is cooled down (liquefied) to LNG and prepared for export.

After a scheduled shutdown earlier this year pressure build-up, which may be related to icing in the plant, was discovered.

During the shutdown, parts of the plant have been heated up and dried. Gas and liquid samples have been taken for analysis, and tests have been conducted in order to find the cause of pressure build-up.

The plant now works as intended and production is back to normal, Statoil reports.
