Wood recently provided technical support for Equinor’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility at Melk?ya 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 Snohvit development in the Barents Sea. The plant has the capacity to produce 4.3 million tonnes per annum of LNG.

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.

Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood's Specialist Technical Solutions business, said: “Wood has a longstanding working relationship with Equinor. We look forward to continuing this partnership by helping the team evaluate and realise opportunities for the continued operation of Hammerfest LNG at plateau and into the foreseeable future through the potential investment of new facilities.”

Geir A. Owren, project director at Equinor, said: “We are looking forward to working together with Wood as part of this study which aims to find effective solutions for the continued success of Hammerfest LNG.
