Statoil is the operator of Gina Krog, an oil and gas field in the North Sea around 250 kilometres west of Stavanger. Water depth in the area is 110-120 metres. The field is being developed using a fixed steel-jacketed production facility and a floating storage unit for oil. The wells are to be drilled using a jack-up drilling facility.
Production is scheduled to being in summer 2017.
The audit took place at Teekay's premises in Stavanger on 9 and 10 May 2017. Teekay has signed a contract with Statoil on the use of the former shuttle tanker Randgrid, which is being converted in Singapore to use as the Gina Krog FSO.
The object of the audit was to gain an impression of whether the load-bearing structures and maritime systems will satisfy the regulatory requirements, and to ensure that the final documentation of the design and fabrication demonstrate compliance with regulations and relevant standards.
No non-conformities were detected or improvement points identified during the audit.
Due to the delays in the project, many maritime systems were still in completion testing and associated documents and certificates were not available. We therefore did not examine all the documentation it was planned to review. We have asked Statoil to arrange a meeting when the testing has been completed.
