Snohvit, Askeladd and Albatross, the three gas fields that make up the Snohvit project, were proven in the early 1980s.
The gas will be routed from the subsea field facilities approximately 140 km via pipeline to the LNG terminal on Melkoya, just outside the center of Hammerfest.
On Melkoya the gas mixture will be processed, and the LNG gas will be separated and liquefied. Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) will also be produced, as well as condensate.
The consent for use covers the following phases:
--Cooling of LNG storage tanks with imported LNG, the first fill of ethane and propane. --Production of fuel gas from LNG, start-up of generators and process facilities. --Receiving first wellstream from the field. --Normal production.
