Statoil has awarded Technip a letter of intent for construction of the hull for the world’s largest Spar platform on the Aasta Hansteen field. This will be run from Statoil’s new operational asset in Harstad.
The project will be led by Technip in a Consortium with Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI).
The Aasta Hansteen platform will be the world's largest Spar platform and the first of its kind on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS). Total recoverable reserves for Aasta Hansteen, previously called Luva, are preliminarily estimated at about 47 billion standard cubic metres (scm) of gas and 0.8 billion scm of condensate.
