Statoil Extends Snohvit Contract with AF Pihl
Statoil has signed a supplementary contract with AF Pihl for commissioning work related to the Snohvit liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal under construction at Melkoya Island near Hammerfest, Norway. Worth approximately NOK 150 million (US$24.4 million), the contract runs for one year.
The contract with AF Pihl covers commissioning of all construction work as well as road-building and leveling on Melkoya outside Hammerfest until the summer of 2007.
"This is a continuation of the work performed by AF Pihl at Melkoya from the construction work started in 2002. The company is therefore familiar with the facilities," said Jens Roar Nilsen, responsible for this contract area in Statoil.
The contract will provide jobs for approximately 65 people.
"We are particularly pleased that AF Pihl will continue to use local suppliers for this contract," Nilsen said.
Hammerfest LNG will process and cool down gas from Snohvit to LNG from December 2007. Statoil is the operator of the Snohvit development and operations.
