The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway has carried out an audit of Equinor and Transocean in respect of technological development, the use of digital well planning, automated drilling and digital twinning on Transocean Enabler. The audit was conducted in the period 11 to 15 October 2021.

Objective
The objective of the audit was to monitor how Equinor and the drilling contractor Transocean have mapped and followed up issues affecting health, safety and the environment, and complied with regulatory requirements concerning the implementation and use of automated drilling control and digital well planning.

Result
Six non-conformities were identified, concerning:
Follow-up
Securing of competence
Analyses of the choice of technical, operational and organisational solutions when implementing new technology.
Organisation of the work
Procedures v Monitoring and control of alarms

An improvement point was also identified concerning the updating of analyses in response to software changes.

What happens next?
We have asked Equinor and Transocean to report on how the non-conformities will be addressed and to give us their assessment of the improvement point observed.

The deadline for reply is set at 31 January 2022.
