Eni Norge has participating interests in several licences on the Norwegian shelf and is currently also operator for the Marulk and Goliat fields. As a result, the company has been engaged in high levels of procurement activity in recent years.
We develop and implement our procurements strategies in order to achieve the best possible agreements for the company.
Procurements linked to Goliat
As operator, Eni Norge is responsible for both development and operation of the Goliat field in the Barents Sea.
The field will be developed using the Sevans patent for a floating production, storage and offloading facility. The Goliat development phase is already well underway. This means that the company has already entered into several contracts linked to the development phase.
However, Eni Norge will still be awarding smaller contracts linked to the development phase, and in the years to come several contracts will be awarded as part of the project's operational phase.
As an oil company operating in the Norwegian petroleum sector, Eni Norge is subject to the Act of 16 July 1999 relating to Public Procurements, and statutory regulations of April 2006 governing procurements in the supply sectors.
The premise and objectives of prevailing legislation are to safeguard competition, equal treatment, transparency, and the use of objective procedures and criteria throughout the entire procurement process.
As a general rule, Eni Norge employs an alternative procedure for our procurements (ref. Chap. 14 of the aforementioned statutory regulations). As part of our upstream activities we employ the Achilles JQS Database as a joint qualification system (JQS) when we draw up lists of potential tender companies during our procurement procedures.
For this reason, Eni Norge encourages suppliers who wish to be considered for Eni contracts to register in the Achilles system (www.achilles.com).
