Audit of Gassco – Kollsnes

We have carried out an audit of Gassco focused on alarm load and working conditions in the central control room at Kollsnes.


The audit was conducted on 6 and 7 November 2018.

Objective
The objective of the audit was to investigate whether the alarm systems at Kollsnes give the operators the necessary support in handling the processing facility during normal operations, during interruptions and in the event of incidents, measured against the relevant company and statutory requirements.

Mapping and follow-up of human factors and the physical working environment in the control room were assessed. The audit also included an assessment of the competency assurance, training and instruction of the operators.

Result
The audit identified two non-conformities relating to analyses of the working environment following modification of the control room and noise requirements.

Three improvement points were also identified, relating to the SCADA system, foot traffic and manning in the control room.

Gassco has been given a deadline of 11 January 2019 to report on how the non-conformities will be addressed. We have also asked for the company’s assessment of the improvement points observed.
