Eni’s Goliat passes environmental data collection test
Norway’s Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) has carried out an audit of environmental data collection at Eni’s Goliat FPSO in the Barents Sea, off Norway.
The regulations instruct the companies to equip the facilities with instrumentation for recording environmental data of potential significance for petroleum activities.
According to the safety authority, in the Barents Sea, environmental data collection is particularly important due to the special climatic conditions and great distances between the facilities.
From 13 to 15 December 2016, with technical assistance from the Norwegian Meteorological Institute, the PSA carried out an audit of Eni’s environmental data collection at the Goliat cylindrical floating, production, storage, and offloading unit.
The purpose of the audit was to review relevant procedures to perform, maintain, and report on the collection of the environmental data and to assess the state of systems and equipment.
The safety watchdog stated that no non-conformities or improvement points were identified during the audit.
