VIDEO: Statoil’s Aasta Hansteen topside finally in Norway

The heavy transport vessel Dockwise White Marlin has delivered the 24,000-tonne Aasta Hansteen topside to Ølen, Norway.

Statoil shared a video of the topside arriving to Norway and said that it would be connected to the spar substructure at Stord in December. The massive substructure for the world’s largest spar platform was upended in early July.

The topside was loaded on the White Marlin in September, and the duo began their journey from Busan, South Korea, only days later.

When the topside and spar substructure are put together, the gas platform will be towed to the Norwegian Sea and the Aasta Hansteen field during 2018.

The Aasta Hansteen platform will be Norway’s first spar platform in production. Spar is a cylindrical, partially submerged offshore drilling and production platform that is particularly well adapted to deepwater.

The gas discovery – previously named Luva – is situated at a depth of 1,300 meters in the Vøring area, 300 kilometers from land.

Statoil is the operator of the field with Wintershall, OMV, and ConocoPhillips as partners.
