However, the shutting down of the facility didn't affect Equinor's deliveries to its customers.

Moreover, Hammerfest liquefaction and export plant uses gas from the Snøhvit development in the Barents Sea to produce about 4.3 million tonnes per annum of LNG.

The fuel produced at the facility is mainly transferred at European LNG terminals and Asian too.

In order to accomplish a better delivery, Equinor established digital support centres that also help create higher value, improve safety and reduce emissions from the company's installations on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS). Thus, they have fruitful results from the first onshore-supported fields.
