Background for the audit
The background for the audit was the fact that the work on the load-bearing structures and maritime systems on Gjøa is nearing completion, and that Statoil plans to apply for consent to use the facility.

An audit had been conducted earlier related to the design of the load-bearing structures and maritime systems.

This audit emphasised review of documentation related to structural components and maritime systems not previously audited.

Purpose of the audit
The purpose of the audit was to ensure that the documentation was in compliance with the regulatory requirements.

We reviewed documentation related to fabrication of load-bearing structures, testing and documentation of maritime systems, weight and centres of gravity plus Statoil’s verifications and audit activities.

Result of the audit
Improvement items were identified related to information on weight and centres of gravity, life spans for mooring lines and anchors, deficiencies in the operations manual, closing of outstanding comments from audits and deficient verification.
