Audit of Gassco – technical safety and safe operations at Kollsnes

From 17 to 19 June 2014, the PSA carried out an audit of the Kollsnes gas processing plant focused on the disciplines of technical safety and safe operations.

The gas treatment plant at Kollsnes in Hordaland county is operated by Gassco.

The purpose of an audit of technical safety is to investigate whether selected barriers and their performance requirements comply with requirements set out in regulations, standards and governing documents.

Explosion loads, structural capacity, uncertainties in risk assessments, overpressure protection and pressure relief are areas that may emphasised.

The audit was well organised and both presentations and interviews evinced a high level of openness.

The PSA identified three improvement points during the audit. These concerned safety-critical equipment, a valve interlock system and alarms.
