Statoil Gets PSA Nod for Aasta Hansteen Facilities

Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway has given Statoil consent to use the spar floating production and offloading vessel (FPSO), subsea systems and infield pipelines on the Aasta Hansteen field in the Norwegian Sea.

Aasta Hansteen field, currently in development, is located in the northern sector of the Norwegian Sea, 120 kilometers northwest of Norne and around 300 kilometers off the Nordland county coast. Water depth in the area is 1270 meters.

Aasta Hansteen was proven in 1997 and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2013.

The development solution is a spar platform and subsea templates, which are tied to the platform by pipelines and rigid steel risers.

The gas from Aasta Hansteen will be transported by the Polarled pipeline to the Nyhamna terminal in Møre og Romsdal county. Light oil will be loaded into tankers and shipped to market.
