Goliat is 50 km (31 mi) southeast of Snohvit field and, Eni said, will be the northernmost producing offshore oil field. Oil will go into a floating production platform for export via shuttle tankers. Associated gas will be reinjected.

The project costs went to 46.7 billion crowns ($5.62 billion) from an original estimate of around 30 billion crowns in 2009.
