“The Goliat project is particularly important for us because we will gain useful experience with facilities operating in the Barents Sea,” says Jan Skogseth, President and CEO in Aibel.
The contract includes preparations and commissioning before start-up at the field. In addition, the project will consist of construction work and work related to commissioning of Goliat.
Goliat is under construction at the Hyundai yard in South Korea. Goliat is a so-called FPSO (Floating Production, Storage and Offloading) and will be the first platform of its kind on Norwegian continental shelf. The Goliat facility will be installed at the Goliat field, which is situated 85 kilometres northwest of Hammerfest.
Eni Norge AS is the operator of the Goliat field with an owner share of 65 percent, while Statoil has an owner share of 35 percent.
