The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has carried out an audit of major accidents and the follow-up of Gassco’s maintenance management at Nyhamna. The audit was carried out from 14 to 16 February 2023.
The objective of the audit was to monitor that the management of maintenance, including its follow-up and any ongoing changes of significance for such management, meets the authorities’ and the company’s own requirements. There was also an objective of confirming that Gassco, with Shell as TSP, complies with the requirements in the major accident regulations.
No non-conformities were identified.
An improvement point was also identified, relating to compliance with the company’s own requirements for maintenance management at Nyhamna.
What happens next?
We have asked Gassco to give us its assessment of the improvement point observed. The reply deadline is set at 14 April 2023.
