DOF Subsea Hauls Goliat FPSO to Its Location

Eni Norge’s Goliat platform is being towed from Hammerfest in Finnmark to the field location in the Barents Sea.

The cylindrical FPSO facility has been lying in the fjord at Ersvika outside Hammerfest for just over two weeks undergoing essential preparations, including final checks and preparations of the living quarters.

The FPSO will now be towed for approximately 80 kilometres from Ersvika to the Goliat field location.

The towing and installation operations are being carried out by DOF Subsea, and the tow alone is expected to take about 15 hours.

At the field location, the FPSO will be connected to its 14 anchor lines. Then the cable supplying electrical power from the mainland will be connected and the risers installed.

The anchor lines, power cable and risers have been pre-installed and are lying ready on the seabed. Next, the topside and subsea systems will be made ready for production operations.
