Norwegian contractor Aibel has been awarded the major services contract worth Nkr8 billion (US$793 million) linked to the Snohvit Future project in Norway which entails the electrification and compression work at the Hammerfest liquefied natural gas facility.

Aibel's workscope covers the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of two new processing modules related to the onshore compression and electrification of the Melkoya-based LNG plant, said the project operator Equinor.

Aibel will also build a new receiving station for power from shore and carry out integration work at the plant.
