Goliat FPSO sails away from HHI yard

Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) has announced today that Goliat FPSO, the world’s largest cylindrical FPSO ordered by Eni Norge, sailed away from its yard.

The 64,000 ton cylindrical floater, measuring 112 m in diameter and 75 m in height, is designed to store one million barrels of crude oil per day. The FPSO will be installed in the Goliat field in the Barents Sea, 85 km northwest of Hammerfest, with start-up expected by mid-2015.

According to HHI, the design and manufacture of the project strictly complied with the NORSOK standards. The FPSO features a cylindrical shape designed to withstand harsh sea conditions.

With the 490-meter-long H-Dock, specifically designed to build mega-sized offshore facilities and the two 1,600 ton gantry cranes at its Ulsan offshore yard, HHI has built nine over-two-million-barrel FPSOs to date accounting for more than 60 percent of the world’s market share.
