Eni Norge has selected the Sevan 1000 FPSO as the preferred concept for the floating production platform to be installed on the Goliat field in the Barents Sea.
The selection of the Sevan 1000 FPSO concept entails that Sevan Marine was chosen as the Contractor for the Goliat Project FPSO Post Feed Engineering Contract and Sevan has subsequently granted a license to Eni for the use of the Sevan 1000 FPSO on the Goliat field.
The Sevan 1000 FPSO has been developed by Sevan Marine, based on Sevan's proprietary technology, and will have an oil production capacity of 100,000 bbls/day, a gas production of 3.9 million Sm3/day and an oil storage capacity of 1 million bbls.
The FPSO will be especially designed for environmentally friendly operations and energy recovery. Electrification from shore will provide reduced emission of CO2 and the oil containment system with segregated ballast tanks and no contact between oil and water preventing the release of polluted ballast water to the sea. The oil containment system will also be protected by ballast tanks in the sides and bottom area. The specially designed winterization solution will provide good working conditions for the crew.
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%.
