"Aasta Hansteen is one of the biggest and most complex industrial projects in Europe. With the Polarled pipeline we are taking the Norwegian gas infrastructure northward across the Arctic Circle for the first time."

"We are building the largest SPAR platform in the world, and we are setting a new depth record of 1,300 metres for a field development and pipeline on the NCS," says Torolf Christensen, Statoil’s head of Aasta Hansteen, at a press conference during ONS 2014.
