On Thursday 24 August 2017, we carried out an audit of Gassco's takeover of the operatorship of the Nyhamna onshore facility. During the audit, we had a presentation and held interviews with Gassco personnel about the takeover process. No explicit documentary verification was performed.
The object of the activity was to ensure that Gassco has undertaken the necessary activities and preparations for taking over the operatorship, and that the process complies with the requirement for prudent operations.
The theme of the audit was examine what Gassco assesses to be core activities for a prudent takeover of the operatorship of Nyhamna. We reviewed topics including organisation, governing documents, experience transfer, communication, KPIs and risk management.
No non-conformities or improvement points were identified during the audit.
Nyhamna – change of operator
The Nyhamna onshore facility is in Aukra municipality in Møre og Romsdal county. The facility was built to receive and process the gas from the Ormen Lange field in the Norwegian Sea, but has now been expanded to receive gas arriving through the Polarled pipeline from the Aasta Hansteen and Dvalin fields and potential future developments further north in the Norwegian Sea.
Gassco is now taking over operatorship of Nyhamna from the existing operator Norske Shell. The change of operator comes into effect on 1 October 2017.
