Goliat FPSO on its way to Barents Sea location

The Goliat oil platform, recently delivered from South Korea to Norway, is now being towed from Hammerfest in Finnmark to the field location in the Barents Sea.

The cylindrical FPSO facility, operated by Eni Norge, has been lying in the fjord at Ersvika outside Hammerfest for just over two weeks undergoing essential preparations, including final checks and preparations of the living quarters

The FPSO will now be towed approximately 80 kilometres from Ersvika to the Goliat field location. The towing and installation operations are being carried out by DOF Subsea, and the tow alone is expected to take about 15 hours.

At the field location, the FPSO will be connected to its 14 anchor lines. Then the cable supplying electrical power from the mainland will be connected and the risers installed. The anchor lines, power cable and risers have been pre-installed and are lying ready on the seabed. Next, the topside and subsea systems will be made ready for production operations.
