The engineering division of The Linde Group has received an order from the Norwegian oil company Statoil ASA for the engineering services of the Kollsnes Gas Network Extension project, Norway.

The Kollsnes Gas Network Extension project comprises an additional dew point control train and two additional sales gas compressor trains of 33m Nm3/d capacity each for the natural gas landing onshore at Kollsnes as well as associated auxiliary facilities. The total natural gas export capacity of the Kollsnes site will thereby be increased to 183 million Nm3/d.

Dr Aldo Belloni, member of the executive board of The Linde Group and responsible for the division Engineering said: $quot;With this award Linde is well positioned for the tendering of the subsequent turnkey contract covering the supply of the plant, a project estimated to be in the triple digit million Euro range.$quot;
