Optimising new oil terminal in Finnmark
The Barents Sea Oil Infrastructure (BSOI) is currently in the concept phase and consists of four production fields (Goliat, Johan Castberg, Alta/Gotha and Wisting) with four different oil qualities. A dedicated fleet of winterized shuttle tankers will transport oil from the four fields to a new onshore receiving terminal at Veidnes, in Nordkapp municipality in Finnmark. The oil will be stored in tanks at Veidnes awaiting the arrival of export tankers which will transport the oil to the market.
In cooperation with Statoil, Safetec has developed a detailed simulation model that simulates the entire supply chain in order to identify bottlenecks and verify the proposed tank size designs, volumes, number of shuttle tankers and number of jetties.
