The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has carried out an audit of Equinor and their management of major accident risk and barriers at Gullfaks C.

The objective of the audit was to assess how Equinor ensures compliance with regulatory requirements related to the management of major accident risk and barriers within technical safety and process safety at Gullfaks C. In the audit, we also sought to verify that previously identified non-conformities and an order that was made have been handled in accordance with the responses given.

Three non-conformities were identified. These concerned:

- Management of non-conformities
- Documentary basis for management of major accident risk
- Weakened barrier elements

Three improvement points were also identified. These concerned:
- Processing of inspection findings
- Practice of overriding safety systems
- Facility-specific competence, training and exercises
- Task and resource management for integrity tasks
