Eni, NCA to collaborate on emergency response in Barents Sea

Offshore staff

SANDNES, Norway – Eni Norge has entered a mutual assistance agreement with the Norwegian Coastal Administration (NCA) on support vessels for the Goliat field in the Barents Sea.

The collaboration – the first of its type in Norway – is designed to strengthen oil spill protection, towing, and search and rescue operations in the far north.

NCA’s towing vessels will be available for emergency tasks around the field and adjacent areas along the West Finnmark coast.

Eni in turn will make available the emergency support vessels Esvagt Aurora and Stril Barents and the supply vessels Njord Viking and Troms Pollux Assistance in the coastal waters between the Hekkingen lighthouse and the Fruholmen lighthouse (Zone 2 of the national emergency towing plan for northern Norway).
