LNG Production Resumes at Hammerfest 20 Months After Fire

After extensive repairs and improvements, as well as some last-minute delays, Hammerfest LNG is back in production after the fire in September 2020. The first liquified natural gas (LNG) is entered the tanks and operator Equinor expects that plant will resume shipments in the next four to five days. The resumption of the operation comes at a critical time as Europe works to expand its LNG sources to meet its commitment to end its imports of Russian oil and gas.
