Audit of Gassco – Nyhamna

On 22 and 23 November 2018, we carried out a major accident audit of Gassco at Nyhamna. The subject of the audit was emergency preparedness, follow-up of last year’s major accident audit and implementation of new requirements in the Major Accident Regulations.

The objective of the audit was to confirm that Gassco and Shell, the TSP, had established an emergency preparedness system that was in compliance with the regulations. This was a follow-up of the major accident audit of 2017. In addition, we wanted to look at: how new requirements in the Major Accident Regulations had been implemented; measures taken following the incident of 4 March 2018 in which an injection point came loose during a leak test; and the status of the vibration problems in the metering station.


No non-conformities were identified.

Two improvement points were identified, in connection with:

  • Submission of an emergency preparedness plan
  • Information provided to the general public

Gassco has been given a deadline of 25 January 2019 to report on how the improvement points will be addressed.
