Hammerfest LNG Back Online

The world’s northernmost LNG-plant has started production again after problems with icing.

Statoil’s plant at Hammerfest has been shut-down since October 14. It was after a scheduled shutdown earlier this year pressure build-up was discovered, believed to be caused by icing in the plant.

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.
