Digitization of the Norwegian Continental Shelf
A new web-based tool is being used for the first time offshore for collecting, systematizing and presenting safety critical information on the Goliat platform in the Barents Sea.The system, developed by Eni Norge in cooperation with Safetec and SINTEF, measures and monitors more than 10,600 technical components in real time.The solution reflects several years of intensive work in the industry to develop better methods and systems for risk management. Since 2013, Eni Norway with design and engineering support from Safetec and SINTEF, and software development of Eigen Ltd, has developed a

spinoffs.Equinor and the other operators with oil deposits in the Barents Sea are looking at the possibilities of oil transfer at Veidnes in Finnmark county, including both a downscaled terminal solution and ship-to-ship transfer.The Johan Castberg partnership consists of Equinor (operator 50 percent), Eni Norge (30 percent) and Petoro (20 percent)
WIN WIN: Wind Powered Oil Recovery Concept Progresses
that wind power could be used to power offshore water injection. The project is currently moving into its second phase, which includes refining and testing the electrical systems, and investigating possibilities for broader applications. The project consists of four partners: DNV GL, ExxonMobil and ENI Norge – all part of the first phase – and the Norwegian Research Council – a new participant for this second phase. The first phase of the project determined the concept is technically feasible, capable of meeting performance targets, and cost-competitive with conventional water

, announcing an innovative solution designed to both help the environment as well as the profitability of the beleaguered oil and gas industry: Wind-Powered Oil Recovery. Specifically the plan is designed to use floating wind turbines to power a water injection system. JIP partners include ExxonMobil, ENI Norge, Nexen Petroleum UK Ltd., Statoil, VNG Norge, PG Flow Solutions and ORE Catapult. “We can now see renewable energy as a large scale source of power to offshore oil & gas operations. By using the recent developments of floating offshore wind turbines this concept can offer a clean
Wind-powered Oil Recovery Project Green-lighted
renewable and oil and gas industries have worked together in the DNV GL-led WIN WIN (wind powered water injection) JIP to develop the concept of using floating wind turbines to power a water injection system in detail and assess its technical and commercial feasibility. JIP partners include ExxonMobil, ENI Norge, Nexen Petroleum UK Ltd., Statoil, VNG Norge, PG Flow Solutions and ORE Catapult. Technical and operational aspects as well as costs have been assessed, and no major challenges have been identified through the JIP’s study. Analyses of system performance examining site specific

for Eni’s growth strategy and will significantly contribute to the cash flow generation. In the Production License 229, Eni holds a 65% stake (operator), while Norway's Statoil holds the remaining 35%. Eni has been present in Norway since 1965, where it operates through its subsidiary Eni Norge AS. In the country, the company has interests in exploration licenses and production fields, including Ekofisk, Åsgard, Heidrun and Kristin with a total equity production in 2015 of 106 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day
Aker Delivers World's First Subsea Compression System
near the wellheads, rather than on a platform, improves recovery rates and reduces capital and operating costs. Subsea compression also leaves a smaller environmental footprint and is safer to operate than a platform. The Åsgard field's operator is Statoil and license partners are Petoro, Eni Norge, Total E&P Norge and ExxonMobil E&P Norway. Aker Solutions has supported Statoil on installation, testing and start-up activities. The compression system is designed for large flow rates, built to be reliable, efficient and flexible. The versatile technology is of particular value for developmen
First Subsea Completes Work on Goliat FPSO
Subsea connector specialist First Subsea informs it has completed the installation of bend stiffener connections for gas lift and production risers, power cables and umbilicals, for the Goliat FPSO in the Norwegian Barents Sea. Operated by ENI Norge AS, the Goliat FPSO is the first offshore oil development in Norway's Arctic region, in the Barents Sea. In total the Goliat FPSO features 11 Type II bend stiffener connections (BSC) at present, with a further 10 receptacle I-tubes preinstalled within the base of the vessel, enabling more tie-backs to be added as field production increases.

Statoil is operator for production license PL532 with an ownership share of 50%. The license partners are Eni Norge AS (30%) and Petoro AS (20%).
Breakthrough in Asset and Environmental Scrutiny
Benefits to asset integrity and environmental monitoring of oil and gas installations will come from a project developed by EniNorge and Tecnomare called Clean Sea (continuous long-term environmental and asset integrity monitoring at sea). The Clean Sea team has found answers to key issues, like the early warning of spills and leakages, with imaginative technological solutions using a Sabertooth hybrid AUV/ROV from Saab Seaeye. They sought to overcome the current shortcomings of environmental monitoring and inspection of oil and gas infrastructures. Usually such work is restricted to an annual
