Norwegian energy giant Equinor has brought back online its Hammerfest liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility located on Melkøya Island in northern Norway.

As reported by LNG World News last week, the LNG export facility was shut down on January 4 due to “technical challenges” with a compressor reinjecting CO2.

“The plant came in operation again yesterday,” an Equinor spokesman told LNG World News via email on Monday.

Hammerfest liquefaction and export plant uses gas from the Snøhvit development in the Barents Sea to produce about 4.3 million tonnes per annum of LNG.

The chilled fuel produced at the facility mainly lands at LNG terminals in Europe but also in Asia.
