2016 - Goliat

Goliat field is an offshore oil field in the Norwegian sector of the Barents Sea. It is located 85 kilometres (53 mi) northwest of Hammerfest. The license is owned by Eni Norge AS (operator, 65%) and Statoil Petroleum AS (35%). It was awarded in 1997. Oil was discovered in 2000. The field development concept was approved by the Government of Norway on 8 May 2009. The field will be developed by using Goliat FPSO, a floating production storage and offloading unit.


Goliat field has two main formations (Kobbe and Realgrunnen) and two minor formations (Snadd and Klappmyss). Recoverable reserves are 174 million barrels (27.7×106 m3). The production was expected to start in summer 2015 on Goliat oil platform, but this was delayed. Production started in April 2016. Goliat is the northernmost sea oil platform at the moment. Production is estimated to continue for 10–15 years. The associated gas will be reinjected to increase oil recovery or will be transported to the processing plant at Melkøya. Production takes place through a subsea system consisting of 22 wells, and of which 12 are oil producers, 7 water injectors and 3 gas injectors.
