VIDEO: Goliat FPSO floats off transport vessel

Goliat_FPSO_floats_off_transport_vesselEni Norge has informed that the Goliat FPSO was successfully floated off the heavy-lift vessel, Dockwise Vanguard, in the fjord outside Hammerfest early this morning.

The FPSO arrived in Hammerfest, Norway on Dockwise Vanguard six days ago (April 17, 2015) following a long journey from South Korea.

According to Eni, the operation went according to plan, and the platform will now be temporarily moored in Ersvika, six kilometres south of Hammerfest.

Once in Ersvika, work to complete preparations for tow out to the Goliat field will begin. This will include inspections, tests and checks of all systems and equipment.

Tow out to the field in the Barents Sea is expected to happen in early May. The field is expected to come on stream by mid-year.
