Statoil has brought its LNG plant at Hammerfest back online after an earlier shutdown on October 14.
The plant had to be closed, because after a scheduled shutdown a pressure build-up was discovered in the plant which may have been caused by excessive icing.
Statoil said in a statement that 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.
