Oil spill protection – northern Norway leads the way
The Eni-operated Goliat field is the first oil field development in the Barents Sea. The project ensures an improved emergency preparedness and oil spill response in the northern Norwegian waters.
“The oil industry is further enhancing its coastal oil spill response”, says Sjur W. Knudsen, Managing Director at NOFO, the Norwegian Clean Seas Association for Operating Companies, which is responsible for oil spill response on behalf of the oil industry. “This applies equally to innovations linked to the organisation and structure of response, the development of equipment, and investment”, he says.
