The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has issued KCA Deutag with an order following the identification of serious breaches of the regulations in an audit of KCA Deutag’s management of maintenance. Notification of the order was made on 2 December 2021 and the order was issued on 20 December 2021. The audit itself was conducted from 23 September to 1 October 2021.

The objective of the audit was to monitor KCA Deutag’s management of maintenance on board the Askepott facility.
