Audit of Aker BP – Valhall Flank West

On 15 and 16 October 2018, we carried out an audit of the foundations of Valhall Flank West.


Objective
The objective of the audit was to check that the engineering and associated verification of the piles, grouting and mud mats for the jacket complied with the regulations.

By means of spot checks, we wanted to see how Aker BP has followed up structural issues with a special focus on the foundations:

  • How the investigations of geotechnical conditions have been carried out
  • Choice of foundation solutions, including mud mats, piles, pile sleeves and grouting
  • How the analyses are performed and verified

Result
No non-conformities were identified.

Improvement points were identified in connection with:

  • Verification
  • Transfer of experience

Aker BP has been given a deadline of 26 November 2018 to report on how the improvement points will be addressed.
