Audit of flexible pipelines at Statoil

On 17 October 2017, we carried out an audit of flexible pipelines at Statoil.


Objective
The objective of the audit was to verify that Statoil is following up on challenges involving flexible pipelines using an integrated approach, and that the pipelines are operated in compliance with the company's own and the authorities' requirements. There was also an objective of monitoring the company's processes for ensuring experience transfer, learning and continuous improvement in respect of flexible pipelines.

Result
No non-conformities or improvement points were identified.

Background
The background to the audit was the major accident potential associated with the operation of flexible pipelines. In recent years, a series of incidents involving flexible pipelines have been reported, which were also presented in our report on trends in risk level in the petroleum activity (RNNP).
