Operator of the field is Statoil ( STO ) which edged down in pre-market trade. Other partners include ConocoPhillips ( COP ), Total ( TOT ), off 0.7% in pre-market to $47.93 and Edison International ( EIX ).

The 480 km Polarled pipeline, located about 300 km offshore Norway, will transport gas from Aasta Hansteen field and future field developments in the Norwegian Sea to the gas processing plant onshore.

The Aasta Hansteen field has reserves of 46.5 billion cubic meters of gas and 0.9 million cu m of condensate.
