Goliat FPSO hook up for Aibel

The contract includes preparations prior to towing the Goliat FPSO offshore, miscellaneous offshore hook-up activities and assistance during final commissioning and start-up of the Goliat field.

Goliat will be the first oil field to come on stream in the Barents Sea. The Goliat FPSO is being built by the Hyundai yard in South Korea and mechanical completion and commission activities are presently on-going.

“The Goliat project is particularly important for us because we will gain useful experience with facilities operating in the Barents Sea,” says Jan Skogseth, President and CEO in Aibel.

It will be the first platform of its kind on the Norwegian continental shelf and is especially designed for the conditions in the Barents Sea. The Goliat FPSO will be installed at the Goliat field, 85 kilometres northwest of Hammerfest.

Eni Norge AS is the operator of the Goliat field with an owner share of 65 percent, partner Statoil ASA has an owner share of 35 percent.
