Source: 1/26/2021, Location: Europe

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway has carried out an audit of Equinor and the company’s barriers for structures, maritime systems and risers at Aasta Hansteen.

The audit was carried out from 3 to 5 November 2020.

The objective of the audit was to review Equinor’s follow-up of the operation and maintenance of structures, maritime systems and risers in order to verify that the company has a holistic approach to safe operations and operates in compliance with its own and the authorities’ requirements.

The audit identified two regulatory breaches, and three issues that we have categorised as improvement points.

The non-conformities concerned:
Preconditions for use of the facility
Maintenance management
The improvement points concerned:
Routines, procedures and training
Follow-up of technical condition
Systematic follow-up of equipment and parts of the facility

What happens next?
We have asked Equinor to report on how the non-conformities will be addressed. We have also asked for the company's assessment of the observations we have categorized as improvement points. The reply deadline is set at 15 February 2021.
