Hammerfest LNG plant production is being restarted gradually

By OGJ editors

Statoil said the Hammerfest LNG plant on Melkoya gradually is being returned to full production, and that the restart began in late July and early August following a temporary shutdown because water got into natural gas dryers.

Water ingression on July 10 caused ice formation in the cooling circuit, Statoil said (OGJ Online, July 12, 2012).

The Snohvit offshore development, which feeds Hammerfest, is the first in the Barents Sea.
