Offshore worker suffers injuries on Eni’s Goliat

Offshore worker suffers injuries on Eni's GoliatAn offshore worker has been injured on Eni Norge’s Goliat floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit in the Barents Sea. 

According to Stavanger Aftenblad, a Norwegian news website, there was an accident on board the Goliat FPSO on Saturday after which one offshore worker was sent to hospital in Tromsø, Norway.

The Norwegian news website also reported that the condition of the worker, employed by one of Eni’s subcontractors, was serious but stable and that the injuries were not life-threatening.

Offshore Energy Today has reached out to Eni and Norway’s offshore safety watchdog, the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA), seeking more details about the incident.

The company was not immediately available for comment.

In an e-mail, the spokesperson for the safety authority confirmed the agency was notified about the accident where one worker was injured and that the accident happened during unloading.

After a number of delays, Eni Norge, the Norwegian subsidiary of the Italian oil company Eni, started production from the Goliat oil field offshore Norway in March this year. Shortly after, in April, the field was hit by a gas leak.

Goliat is the first oil field to come on stream in the Barents Sea and is being developed using a floating cylindrical production and storage and offloading unit built in South Korea.

Eni holds a 65% stake (as operator) in Production Licence 229. The Norwegian company Statoil holds the remaining 35%.
