FEED contract to Aibel
On behalf of the Snøhvit Unit partners, Equinor has awarded Aibel a front-end engineering and design contract (FEED) for modification of the Hammerfest LNG plant in connection with the Snøhvit Future project.
The FEED contract has an estimated value of NOK 140 million and will contribute with about 80 man-years for Aibel. All work under the FEED contract will be performed in Norway. The FEED work will cover two sub-projects under the Snøhvit Future development: onshore compression and Hammerfest LNG electrification.
The first sub-project involves the construction of an onshore compression station at the Hammerfest LNG plant. As the pressure in the wells on the Snøhvit field decreases, there will be a need for pressure support to maintain plateau production at the plant.
The onshore compression station would be expected to contribute to an increase of the recovery factor from the Snøhvit field. Equinor and partners plan a concept select decision for the compression scope during autumn 2020.
