Drilling under way on Goliat offshore Norway

Offshore staff

SANDNES, Norway – Production drilling has started on the Eni-operated Goliat oil field development in the Barents Sea.

A total of 22 wells will be drilled from eight templates already installed on the seafloor. Drilling is expected to last at least three years and will continue after the scheduled start of production in summer 2014.

Development calls for 11 production wells, nine water injectors, and two gas injectors. Goliat’s reservoir zones are relatively shallow and characterized by low pressure and low temperature. Water depths in the area range from 350-400 m (1,148-1,312 ft).

Eni estimates recoverable reserves at 174 MMbbl of oil and 8 bcm (283 bcf) of gas.

Its partner in the project is Statoil.
