Audit of Goliat

We have carried out an audit of work on hydrocarbon-carrying systems on Goliat.

Goliat is an oil field in the Barents Sea, around 50 kilometres south-east of Snøhvit. ENI is the operator of Goliat, which has been developed using a floating processing, storage and accommodation facility of the Sevan 1000 type. Eight subsea templates are tied to the facility. Stabilised oil is transhipped to a shuttle tanker and transported to market, while for the time being associated gas is reinjected into the reservoir. Production began in March 2016.

From 30 January to 3 February 2017, we carried out an audit of the planning and execution of work on hydrocarbon-carrying systems for the Goliat facility.

The audit was a sub-activity of an audit series that will continue throughout 2017. The background to this sub-audit includes the seven hydrocarbon leaks that occurred in 2016.

The objective of the audit was to follow up how ENI is managing risk associated with work on hydrocarbon-carrying systems, and how the compensatory measures implemented for this area are working.

The audit detected one non-conformity associated with knowledge of the status of safety systems.

In addition, improvement points were detected in connection with:

ENI has been given a deadline of 12 May 2017 to report on how the non-conformity will be dealt with and how the improvement points will be assessed.
