Heidi Eliassen works as an HSE Coordinator on the Goliat FPSO, the only floating production unit in the Norwegian sector of the Barents Sea.
There are several articles about Goliat, with mostly negatively headlines. According to Eliassen, this is unfair and incorrect. She enjoys working on the platform and points out the good working environment and well-being.
When the reporter from Stavanger Aftenblad visited Goliat workers on the platform, they were planning for the coming night shift. According to Mads Lycke Østrem, a platform worker, he was warned by industry colleagues prior to his visit: “Don’t go out there, it’s about to sink.” He was sceptical when he went out. After a day or two of observing the work, he points out that it is a relief to discover that the reality is different from the history.
Lycke points out that everything is in place for Goliat to become a super rig.
The Goliat FPSO is a cylindrical Sevan unit with a 90 meter diameter and 950,000 bbls of storage capacity.
