Eni Norge selected the Sevan 1000 FPSO as concept for the floating production platform to produce the Goliat field in the Barents Sea.
Sevan Marine has licensed the floater technology to the project as well as carrying out the front end engineering for the complete unit (FEED). Goliat FPSO has oil production capacity of 100,000 bbls/day, gas injection capacity of 3.9 million Sm3/day and an oil storage capacity of 950 000 bbls.
The FPSO is especially designed for environmentally friendly operations and energy recovery. The unit will be powered from shore providing significantly reduced CO2 emissions and the oil containment system with segregated ballast tanks surrounding the cargo tanks and no contact between oil and water is avoiding accidental release of oil or polluted ballast water to the sea. Specially designed winterization solutions provide good working conditions for the crew even in the harsh Barents Sea Conditions.
The Goliat field is located in the Barents Sea north west of Hammerfest at a water depth of about 400 meters. The Italian energy company Eni is operator on the field with an ownership of 65%, while Statoil has an ownership of 35%.
