Statoil Hammerfest LNG plant shut after power failure

BY DOMINIC CHOPPING

Statoil said production at its LNG plant at Melkoya, Hammerfest, in Norway, has been shut down after power failure on November 19 2012.

The incident resulted in the emergency response organisation being mobilised, and personnel were according to instructions evacuated from the inner area to the outer plant area. No one was injured during the incident.

The plant was without power for about 20 minutes before it received power from the grid, and work to normalise activity is now being carried out. Production at Hammerfest LNG will remain shut down until the facility has been inspected and checked for any damage or malfunction. The authorities have been notified and the incident will be investigated.
