Italy's Eni could restart the Goliat oilfield in the Barents Sea "within weeks" after completing an inspection and repairs, an Eni spokesman said on Monday.

Norway's Petroleum Safety Authority on Oct. 6 ordered a production halt at the 100,000 barrel per day oilfield, which has experienced a series of incidents, due to faults of its explosion-proof electric engines.

PSA said on Monday Eni had to present a detailed plan for handling risk management and repairs at the Goliat platform by Dec. 11.
