The company will provide systems including ROVs and motion and position sensors to monitor steel catenary riser response in the tough down zone on the spar.
The spar, currently under construction in South Korea, will be the largest in the world and the first of its type to be deployed on the Norwegian continental shelf.
The development is about 300 kilometres off Norway and around 120 km north of the northernmost Norwegian Sea facility at Norne.
The Aasta Hansteen field is expected to produce 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. The spar will also have storage capacity of 160,000 barrels of condensate.
The hull will be fitted with storage for condensate. The condensate will be loaded to shuttle tankers at the field.
Statoil operates the field on 75% with Austrian state oil company OMV on 15% and US giant ConocoPhillips on 10%.
