The Preface to Volume 1 it says the following.

The revised list of abbreviations has been used as the basis for the one presented here. Because the sigla and the patterns of abbreviation changed from time to time during the production of HAL, one of my aims in the English edition has been to introduce a greater measure of consistency and clarity within the text itself. But it was impossible in the time allowed to complete this task as thoroughly as I would have liked. Abbreviations for Hebrew words and for the sigla have hardly been changed (the most noticeable will be an arrow instead of the famous digamma for cross references). Only the most common grammatical terms are abbreviated; the rest are spelled out in full; I adopted a similar approach to the names of languages and dialects. The only proper name to be abbreviated as a matter of course is the tetragrammaton. Abbreviations for the books of the Bible have been anglicised where necessary, and sometimes expanded to avoid confusion.

Thank you for posting this. 

I still cannot locate "The revised list of abbreviations..." stated in the first line :)

I guess this information is not produced?

I could not find a list either. In the Logos edition of HALOT, all abbreviations are presented as hotspots, activating window pop-ups with the full expansion of the abbreviation.

I did find a list of Abbreviations and Sigla for "A Concise Lexicon of Late Biblical Hebrew". Perhaps this will help - http://ohb.berkeley.edu/Abbreviations%20and%20Sigla.pdf

I'm glad that helped. I still would be interested if someone could find a specific list for HALOT.

I had the same question.  I found the Brill online version of HALOT includes the sigla and abbreviations page which can be viewed without having a subscription to it. Just make sure you click on the circled green heading to view the information.
