The Goliat field is located on the Norwegian part of the Barents Sea. Goliat will be the first oil field to be developed in an area that is considered very important with respect to fishing and wild life resources. The Goliat field will be developed by a Floating Production, Storage and Offloading vessel of novel circular design connected to eight subsea templates containing production, water injection and gas injection wells. The produced oil will be exported via dedicated shuttle tankers to the commercial market and it is expected that the limited gas resources over time can be export via available infrastructure in the area. The development solution is based on use of a circular and geo-stationary FPSO that will receive electric power from the onshore grid as one mean to reduce emission of green house gases
