ULSAN, South Korea – Statoil (OSE:STL) has awarded Hyundai Heavy Industries a $1.1-billion contract to supply the topsides for the Aasta Hansteen spar platform.

Last year, Hyundai was also selected to build the hull for the facility, which will be the world’s largest spar to date, and the first to include storage for condensate.

Statoil recently submitted a development plan for the Aasta Hansteen field in the Norwegian Sea to Norway’s authorities.

The 21,000-ton topsides will be designed to produce and process 23 MMcmoe/d of light oil and gas, and will be built with assistance from Houston-based CB&I.

The 195-m (640-ft) hull, to be delivered under a co-operation with Technip, will be equipped to store 160,000 bbl of condensate.
