Aptomar to Enhance Oil Spill Detection at Goliat Field

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/3/2015, Location: Europe

Aptomar has entered into a service agreement with Hammerfest-based maritime electronics company O.M. Ronning Skipselektronikk to further enhance oil spill detection and combating capabilities at Eni Norgeís Goliat field. Under the contract, O.M. Ronning Skipselektronikk will provide services and support for the systems and products that Aptomar utilizes at Eni Norgeís Goliat field. The contract is also valid for other Aptomar-systems, both in Norway and internationally.

Aptomar has provided Eni Norge with the marine surveillance and oil spill detection and management system for the Goliat field development. The system is probably the most advanced oil spill detection and management system on the Norwegian continental shelf.

ďThe contract with O.M. Ronning Skipselektronikk gives us a valuable physical presence in Hammerfest. This will provide even shorter response time and higher service levels if maintenance is required on our equipment onboard the Goliat FPSO, shuttle tankers, Goliat ERRV or PSV vessels in the area,Ē says Lars Solberg, chief sales and marketing officer at Aptomar.

Goliat is the first floating production field development in the harsh environments of the Barents Sea. In response to this, Aptomar and Eni Norge has created a holistic emergency response management system, focusing on rapid detection and controlled combating of a spill, in addition to protecting the safety and integrity of both personnel and assets onboard and around the FPSO.

ďAs a company that perform service and fitting of all kinds of maritime electronics, we are a good fit for Aptomarís requirements. Furthermore, it is great that Aptomar follows in Eni Norgeís footsteps and supports the build-up of competence and creation of local oil industry jobs in the far north of Norway,Ē says Torbein Ronning, managing director of O.M. Ronning Skipselektronikk.

Aptomarís field monitoring system on Eniís Goliat field allows 360-degree surveillance coverage from the FPSO hull outwards, plus the ability to detect small and large oil spills independent of light, wind and weather conditions, and estimate the relative thickness of a spill and where it is drifting. This information is also easily sharable between all onshore and offshore asset, other operators and governmental organisations.
