Vår Energi – Jotun FPSO – Project Management & Follow-up Pursuant to PDO

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 1/20/2022, Location: Europe

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has carried out an audit of Vår Energi’s arrangements for and performance of project management in respect of the upgrading and life extension of the Jotun FPSO.

The audit was conducted on 9 and 10 November 2021. This was a continuation of our audit of 3 and 4 June 2021.

The work that the companies undertake to plan and execute projects is important for the quality, safety and the working environment of the finished product.

Deficiencies in project management can lead to negative HSE effects, in part due to overly optimistic plans, underestimations, and discrepancies between actual and documented statuses.

This may have consequences for compliance with safety and working environment requirements because such project-related risks can have a negative impact on:

emphasis on quality considerations in the project moving forward
quality of technical deliveries
arrangements for safe start-up and operation
Project management is therefore one of a number of priorities in the PSA's supervisory strategy.

This audit covered Vår Energi's planning, follow-up and management of work remaining until the Jotun FPSO is sailed to a new location, as well as the company's handling of a previously identified planning non-conformity and a follow-up-related improvement point.

The objective of the audit was to verify that Vår Energi is carrying out the project in accordance with the HSE regulations, and that the company, through its project management, is ensuring that, in the project execution phase, they are reducing risk and preventing accidents during the start-up and operational phases.

The audit identified no new non-conformities or improvement points.
