The Company:
Our client is an international energy company with operations in 36 countries. Building on 40 years of experience from oil and gas production on the Norwegian continental shelf, they are committed to accommodating the world's energy needs in a responsible manner, applying technology and creating innovative business solutions. They are headquartered in Norway with approx. 21,000 employees worldwide, and are listed on the New York and Oslo stock exchanges.

The Role:
The Aasta Hansteen field is located approximately 300 km west of Bodø on 1300 m water depth in harsh weather conditions. The field development consists of a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) platform, with living quarter. The platform hull is a SPAR concept with integrated condensate storage. The condensate will be exported through offloading to shuttle tanker on a regular basis. Rich gas export will be through a new pipeline, Norwegian Sea Gas Infrastructure (NSGI), to Nyhamna, approximately 500 km distance from the Aasta Hansteen field.
The Aasta Hansteen topside is an integrated process, utility and living quarter platform. The gas is processed into rich gas for export to Nyhamna, and undergoes dehydration, hydrocarbon dew pointing and export compression prior to export. Condensate knocked out from the gas is stabilized for storage in the hull storage tanks and off-loading to shuttle tanker. Produced water is cleaned and disposed overboard to sea.
The platform is self-contained with all utilities including power generation.
The Hull is a Spar type with steel catenary risers pulled in to topside through the monopole. The Spar Hull is designed for a total of 16 riser slots, where three initially will be used for production, one will be used for gas export and one slot used for umbilical riser
