The two-month extension will allow Eni to use the flotel until 30 November 2015.

Goliat is an oil field located around 50km southeast of the Snøhvit field in the Barents Sea, at 360-420m water depth.

Eni is developing the Goliat field using the Sevan-designed circular FPSO, which includes eight subsea templates with a total of 32 well slots. The subsea templates will be tied to the FPSO using an integrated storage and loading system.

Production from the Goliat field, estimated to hold about 178 MMboe, was originally expected to start in 4Q 2013, but the project has been beset with delays and cost overruns. However, when the field comes onstream, Goliat will become the world's northernmost producing offshore oil field.

Eni is the operator of the Goliat field with 65% stake, with its partner Statoil (35%).
