Audit of Equinor – Martin Linge B

On 25 July 2018, we carried out an audit of the follow-up of materials handling, cranes and lifting on Martin Linge B.


MT Hanne Knutsen has been converted to a floating storage and offloading unit (FSO) and named Martin Linge B. Equinor is leasing Martin Linge B from Knutsen NYK Offshore Tankers AS (KNOT), which is also operating the facility.

Objective
The audit formed part of our follow-up of the development project for the Martin Linge field. The objective of the audit was to assess whether the requirements for materials handling, cranes and lifting on Martin Linge B were being met during the conversion of and operational preparations for the facility.

Result
The audit detected non-conformities in the areas of procedures for cranes and lifting operations, completion of cranes and training.

Equinor has been given a deadline of 3 September 2018 to report on how the non-conformities will be addressed.
