Major Goliat oil spill exercise offshore Finnmark
Goliat, the first oil field in the Barents Sea, will soon be onstream. The first full-scale exercise of Goliat’s oil spill contingency operations will take place between 10th and 14th September.
The Goliat project brings with it new organisational principles for oil spill contingency operations on the Norwegian shelf. The latest technologies and a new team of professionals (coastal fishermen) will be fully integrated as active participants in the oil industry. The exercise, which will take place between 10th and 14th September, will involve the very first full-scale test of the Goliat contingency apparatus.
