Hammerfest LNG back in production

Statoil's LNG plant at Melkøya, near Hammerfest in Northern Norway is back in production, after a shut-down on July 10th, following the ingression of water into the natural gas dryers.

The liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant was started up again at the end of July/beginning of August and is gradually being returned to full production.
 
Statoil’s share of production from Snøhvit comprises roughly 50,000 barrels of oil equivalents per day.

Snøhvit is the first petroleum development in the Barents Sea and has no installations above the sea’s surface.

Large amounts of natural gas are sent ashore and cooled down at Hammerfest LNG on Melkøya, the world’s most northerly and Europe’s first export facility for LNG.
