Wood recently provided technical support for Equinor’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility at Melkøya Island, Norway, as part of a new contract secured under an existing master services agreement.
Hammerfest LNG is Europe’s largest LNG liquefaction plant and uses gas from the Snøhvit development in the Barents Sea. The plant has the capacity to produce 4.3 million tonnes of LNG per annum.
As part of the scope of work, Wood’s process technology & consulting team carried out a study phase assessment of onshore compression, additional LNG processing capacity and electrification of the facility. The study looked at the use of modular applications in brownfield environments to ensure a balance between safety, layout, construction and process constraints.
