Norway's Snoehvit LNG Plant Shut Due to Gas Alarm

Reuters

OSLO, Jan 27 (Reuters) – Production at Norway's Snoehvit liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant was stopped on Tuesday due to a gas leak and the duration of the outage was unknown, operator Statoil said.

"The production at the plant has been stopped and we don't know when it can be restarted again," Statoil's spokesman Oerjan Heradstveit said.

The gas alarm has triggered evacuation of workers from the affected areas at Europe's only LNG plant, the Norwegian police said earlier.
