Norway’s Equinor has postponed the restart of production at its Arctic liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant in Hammerfest, Norway, by one week to June 14. 

Equinor halted production at Hammerfest LNG, located on Melkoeya island, on May 31 due to a leak in the cooling circuit. 

There were some technical challenges during the ramp-up of the facility that were not related to last week’s incident, an Equinor spokesperson says. 

Equinor is now awaiting delivery of a component needed to continue the restart preparations. 

During the shutdown, the Arctic Aurora tanker loaded up a partial cargo from the site on June 2, but has remained moored since.
