In accordance with standard procedure, the decision was made to send non essential personnel to shore.

The non essential personnel was sent to Hammerfest by helicopter where they were received by Eni Norge representatives.

When the power returned a few hours later, the evacuation was stopped, and the situation normalized.

Eni Norge has notified all relevant authorities.

In March, production finally started from Norway’s first Arctic oil field, at the Goliat floating production facility in the Barents Sea. 

The 180 MMbo field, the first producing oil field in the Barents Sea and the northernmost producing oilfield, will produce 100,000 b/d once all 22 of its subsea wells (12 production and seven water and gas injection wells) are on stream. Currently, 17 wells have been completed.
