Statoil Restarts Hammerfest LNG Terminal

Statoil’s LNG plant at Hammerfest is back online after being shut down for scheduled maintenance in May.

The plant has been up and producing at normal levels for some time,” Reuters cited Statoil’s spokesman Ola Anders Skauby as saying.

The Hammerfest LNG terminal has a design capacity of 4.2 million tonnes per annum (mtpa).

Commissioned in 2007, it processes gas transported through 143-km pipeline from the subsea facilities on the Snøhvit and Albatross fields, which comprise the first offshore developments in the Barents Sea.
