Snøhvit job for Linde

A contract worth some NOK 1.6 billion for deliveries to the Snøhvit gas liquefaction plant being built at Melkøya in northern Norway was awarded on 23 July to Germany’s Linde group. Placed by operator Statoil and the other field licensees, this assignment embraces engineering, procurement and construction management for the facility. The plant will convert natural gas from Snøhvit in the Barents Sea to liquid form. Linde has also worked on preliminary engineering of the plant and its associated receiving terminal at Melkøya, which is outside Hammerfest in Finnmark county. The present contract builds on this foundation, with work due to be based in Germany. Norway’s Aker Kværner and Multiconsult/Barlindhaug companies are substantial subcontractors to Linde. The gas liquefaction plant will be ready in 2006.
