Eni nears Goliat startup in Barents Sea

Offshore staff

OSLO, Norway – Eni Norge has approval from Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway to start using the circular FPSO and associated facilities on the Goliat oil field in the Barents Sea.

This follows PSA’s receipt of letters earlier this month from Eni, outlining remaining pre- and post-startup of the platform, and from partner Statoil.

Goliat, in license 229, was proven in 2000. It is the first oil field to be developed in the Norwegian sector of the Barents Sea.

The location is 50 km (31 mi) southeast of the Snøhvit field in water depths of 360-420 m (1,181-1,378 ft).

Development is based around a Sevan 10000 FPSO, connected to eight subsea templates with 32 well slots.
