Audit of Equinor – Troll C

We have carried out an audit of Equinor and technical safety on Troll C. The audit was conducted between 15 and 19 October 2018.

The objective of the audit was to investigate how Equinor is ensuring compliance with the authorities’ requirements and how barriers within technical safety, process safety and electrical facilities are managed on Troll C.

Six non-conformities were identified, relating to:

  • Follow-up and overview of passive fire protection
  • Lighting in the emergency hospital and back-up emergency hospital
  • Automatic actions in the event of gas detection
  • Electrotechnical system analyses
  • High-voltage equipment warning signs
  • Monitoring and control

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

  • Storage and follow-up of safety equipment in switchrooms
  • Work on electrical facilities
  • Knowledge and updating of operating documentation
  • Start-up of fire pumps in the event of gas detection

Equinor has been given a deadline of 25 January 2019 to report on how the non-conformities and improvement points will be addressed.
