Audit of emergency preparedness and technical safety at Oseberg Sør

From 14 to 23 August 2017, we conducted an audit of Statoil Petroleum AS (Statoil) within emergency preparedness and technical safety at Oseberg Sør (OSS).


Objective
The objective of the audit was to verify that Statoil is ensuring emergency preparedness and technical safety at OSS in compliance with the regulatory requirements. This included verification that the operational, organisational and technical barrier elements are being addressed by Statoil in a coherent and consistent manner, so as to ensure robust and prudent solutions (design and operation).

Result
Three non-conformities were identified in connection with:

  • Securing of hatches
  • Technical condition of field equipment in the PA installation
  • The SAP maintenance system

In addition, four improvement points were identified in connection with:

  • Emergency plans
  • System for training deputies
  • Actions in the event of a fire in the cement pump room 
  • Alarm control room

Statoil has been given a deadline of 30 October 2017 to report on how the non-conformities and improvement points will be addressed.
