Audit of Equinor – flexible pipes

We have conducted an audit of flexible pipes at Equinor Energy AS (Equinor).

The audit was carried out on 25 September 2018.

The background to the audit was the major accident potential associated with the operation of flexible pipes. In recent years, a series of incidents linked to these pipes have been reported, as also shown in our report on risk levels on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (RNNP). More than 50% of Equinor’s production flows through flexible pipes.

The objective of the audit was to gain an overview of Equinor’s follow-up of the operation and maintenance of flexible pipes, and to ensure that they have a holistic approach to the safe operation of these pipes that meets their own and the authorities’ requirements.

No non-conformities or improvement points were identified during the audit.
