Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 10/5/2021, Location: Europe

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has carried out an audit of Gassco and Equinor's follow-up of operations and maintenance prior to decommissioning and removal of the Heimdal main platform (HMP) and the Heimdal riser platform (HRP).

The audit was conducted by means of an onshore part in May 2020 (separate report) and an offshore verification of the facilities from 9 to 11 August 2021.

The objective of the audit was to examine how Gassco is fulfilling its supervisory responsibility and to verify that Equinor has established an operating model with sufficient capacity to handle normal operational and maintenance tasks such that the operation of the facilities complies with its own and the regulatory requirements.

One regulatory non-conformity was identified, relating to the management of maintenance.

In addition, two improvement points were identified, relating to:
• Governing documents
• Planning and prioritisation of maintenance

What happens now?
We have asked the companies to report on how the non-conformity will be addressed. We have also requested an assessment of the improvement points identified. The deadline for this is set at 1 November 2021.
