Eni Norge AS (Eni Norge) has received consent to perform manned underwater operations on the Goliat field.

Goliat is an oil field in the Barents Sea, around 50 kilometres south-east of Snohvit. The field has been developed using a floating production unit (FPSO).

Eni Norge AS has received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway to perform manned underwater operations in connection with repairs and improvements at Goliat. 

The planned start-up is June 2017. The activities will last at least 21 days.

The underwater operations will be performed by Eni's contractor Deep Ocean AS and their subcontractor SubseaPartner AS.

Diving will take place from the surface down to a maximum depth of 25 metres.
