Norway: Statoil Restarts Hammerfest LNG Terminal

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.

Floating LNG

Despite challenging market conditions, global capital expenditure (Capex) on FLNG facilities is forecast to increase significantly over the 2016-2022 period. The protracted oil price downturn has impacted the sanctioning of capital intensive liquefaction units over the last 24 months. However, the need to move towards cleaner sources of energy and diversify gas supply has stimulated the floating regasification market – over 14 countries are expected to commission their first floating import unit over the forecast period. Against this backdrop, SMi’s 5th annual Floating LNG conference will provide attendees with strategic insight on the latest developments within the FLNG market to optimise activities and ensure project sustainability and success. The two-day programme will also equip you with the tools to overcome the logistical, financial, technological and economic challenges associated with FLNG deployment and ensure succinct transition from design to operation.
