OSLO -- 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. Sevan Marine has been chosen as the contractor for the Goliat Project FPSO post-feed engineering contract and will grant a license to Eni for the use of the Sevan 1000 FPSO.
The FPSO has been developed by Sevan Marine, based on Sevan's proprietary technology, and will have an oil production capacity of 100,000 b/d, a gas production of 3.9 MMcm/d, and an oil storage capacity of 1 MMbbl.
The FPSO will be designed for environmentally friendly operations and energy recovery. Electrification from shore will provide reduced emission of CO2 and the oil containment system will reduce the risk for oil pollution. The oil containment system will be protected by ballast tanks in the sides and bottom area. There will be no contact between the oil and the ballast water, preventing the emission of polluted ballast water, according to Sevan Marine.
