The subsidence of the Ekofisk and Eldfisk fields is increasing the risk of waves hitting the decks on the facilities and imposing large loads on the structures. This problem has been a topical theme of the PSA's audits for several years and has become even more important following last winter's incident on COSLInnovator.
The PSA carried out an audit of how ConocoPhillips is addressing this challenge at meetings at the company's Tananger premises on 7 and 8 November 2016.
No non-conformities were detected during this audit.
However, improvement points were detected relating to deficient analyses and verification of analyses.
ConocoPhillips has been requested to respond by 20 January 2017 concerning how these improvement points will be assessed.
