Goliat FPSO Leaves HHI, Heads to Norway

Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) announced 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.

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, HHI said.

According to Eni, the FPSO should arrive in Hammerfest by the middle of April.

The platform on the Eni-operated Goliat field, the first oil field to come into production in the Norwegian sector of the Barents Sea, will be supplied with electrical power from the mainland using the longest submarine cable of its type in the world.

The field, in waters measuring 400 meters deep, is located on Production Licenses 229 and 229B.
