LONDON, Apr. 20 -- Sevan Marine ASA has agreed to license to Eni Norge AS the technology required for its circular floating production, storage, and offloading vessel that will process oil and gas from Goliat field in the Barents Sea.

Sevan Marine's 1000 FPSO will have an oil production capacity of 100,000 b/d, gas production of 3.9 million cu m/day, and oil storage capacity of 1 million bbl. Subsea wells will be linked to the FPSO, with flowlines and risers scheduled to be installed in June-July 2010 and May-August 2011. The field will start production in 2013 and is expected to produce for 15-20 years.

Eni in March awarded the post-feed engineering contract to Sevan for the FPSO, but it has not yet selected a contractor for the engineering, procurement, and construction work (OGJ Online, Feb. 9, 2009).

Goliat is northwest of Hammerfest in 400 m of water. Eni is operator and holds a 65% stake, while StatoilHydro has 35%.
